Brooklyn Judge Delays Trial to Allow Juror to Audition for ‘Law & Order: SVU’

People will try just about anything to get out of jury duty.
But I’ve never seen anything like this: a judge presiding over a high-profile attempted murder case in Brooklyn delayed the trial for several hours to allow one of the jurors to audition for a television show. But it wasn’t just any show. In one of those moments that seems to prove that the universe has a sense of humor, the juror received a call to audition for Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
