Opinion: Value of Jury Duty

In a letter to the editor of the Jackson Sun, long-time Jackson-Madison County resident Dr. Nancy Oberg discusses how completing her first jury duty service opened her eyes to a new appreciation for those in the legal professions. “I saw first-hand the judicial system at work: The meticulous attention to detail and organization of judges and staff, the vast cross section of fellow Madison County residents in the jury pool, and the commitment of law enforcement officials," Oberg writes. She concludes with thanking the “hardworking, dedicated men and women” who serve in the legal professions for their service.
