Mom worked for an insurace company years ago and got called for jury duty. The case was a car accident and the resulting dispute with the insurance company. It was not the company Mom worked for. Both Lawyers got rid of her quick from the jury pool. One because she might like her job and side with the insurance company, the other because she might hate her job and side against it.
