Here’s an Easy Way to Get Out of Jury Duty

British rock group Led Zeppelin is being sued for copyright infringement over claims that the music for its 1971 song, "Stairway to Heaven," was lifted from an instrumental, “Taraus,” by the late Randy Craig Wolfe, who wrote his song back in 1967 and passed away just four years later. As part of the upcoming trial’s vior dire, jurors are required to complete a questionnaire that will query them on their knowledge of 1960s and 1970s rock-and-roll bands, their own music-download habits, and their opinions of “celebrities’ honesty.” Really? How honest do you think celebrities are?

For those who do not want to serve on this jury, here is the perfect out. “Sorry, judge, I was stoned. I don’t remember anything.” Just be sure the statute of limitations on any drug charges has run out.
