A juror on the Mayor Eddie Perez case was dismissed after she sent the judge a note saying she just couldn’t stay awake. There’s some other nonsense about how she may or may not be batshit but what interests me is that she seems to have convinced the government she can’t work because she cannot stay awake. From The Courant:
She sent a note to Judge Julia Dewey and then took the witness stand with the rest of the jury absent from the courtroom. She told the judge that despite her efforts to focus, she couldn’t stay awake.
Judge Dewey asked the woman if the problem was related to a certified disability that kept her from working, and the woman said it was.
WTF? I’m tired too!
Why the Hell do I have to get my ass up every morning and go to work? This seems unfair.
