"There are three shows that prepare you for jury duty: Columbo
, The Verdict
with Paul Newman and My Cousin Vinny
(jury pool laughter). I'm serious! There are a lot of good things that happen in that movie! If you've seen those three, then you've seen everything you need to be a good juror . . . Keep an open mind."
--Orange County Superior Court Judge James P. Marion
this morning addressing hundreds of potential jurors gathered at the county's Central Justice Center in Santa Ana.
