The week of May 16 is Pennylvania's Juror Appreciation Week. Why? The Pa. Senate deemed it so in a resolution.
Here's part of what State Supreme Court Chief Justice Ronald D. Castille had to say in response:
“The success of our jury system depends on the participation of every citizen who is called to serve. That is why during Jury Appreciation Week we honor and thank those Pennsylvania citizens who, by serving as jurors during the past year, have kept faith with the founders of their nation and helped to keep the principles of democracy alive. We encourage all citizens to do the same.”
