Except there is a lot you can tell from a person's way of carrying themselves. I mean, if a defendant is crying or laughing, stuff like that. These are cues that blind individuals would miss.

Really, I think it depends upon the case. For example, if it's a murder case where there is loads of visual evidence then no I don't think a blind person should because they wouldn't be able to see the evidence and make a decision on it. However, if the case isn't loaded with visual evidence then really I don't think it would matter much.----- Original Message ----- *From:* Jim Lu. <mailto:jimlu3665@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> *To:* blind_html@xxxxxxxxxxxxx <mailto:blind_html@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> *Sent:* Monday, November 10, 2008 7:33 PM *Subject:* blind_html Jury duty and blindness.
