Saturday, September 5, 2009 helps out U.S. jurors

One of my favorite blogs is In a slide show, I found out that U.S. citizens over eighteen can actually participate at providing opinion for cases that are going to trial - and earn money for it.
The caption reads: "If you're over the age of 18 and are a US citizen, you can make money at home by giving your opinion online with Online Verdict about cases that are going to trial. Way better than jury duty."

I checked out the website and here's how they make their people work: provides online case review and juror feedback services to attorneys and legal professionals. Qualified jurors from the case venue review case summaries and answer verdict and case-related questions. The lawyer or legal professional who posts the case receives tabulated feedback from a panel of either 25 or 50 qualified respondents which highlights case strengths and weaknesses, possible settlement value, and general attitudes and opinions about the case facts. This information allows attorneys and legal professionals to make better decisions about trying, mediating and settling their legal disputes.

What a great idea! Could it work in the Philippines?
