Corpus Christi, TX

Despite compensation increases enacted by the Texas legislature in 2005, there are still jury no-shows. At a morning news conference held at the Nueces County Courthouse, the Bay Area Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse and several Nueces County officials joined together to remind the public of the importance of jury service with the launch of a public service campaign.

“Jury service is one of the best weapons we have against lawsuit abuse,” said Connie Scott, President of Bay Area Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse (BACALA). “Not only is jury service a responsibility, it is a privilege we want to encourage all eligible citizens to embrace. By returning an impartial verdict, jurors make sure our courts are used for justice, not greed.”
