Duncan delay will be a long one

The federal court has issued an order advising the more than 300 potential jurors in the Joseph Duncan case that their term as potential jurors is being extended due to the delays in the case – the judge has ordered a second mental evaluation of the defendant – and that all prospective jurors are now asked to call in for instructions on June 23rd. Until then, the court order says, “Potential jurors are free to go about their business or vacations so long as they notify the Jury Administrator if they will be out of the area for more than two weeks. The Court apologizes for what may be a lengthy delay in this case. Your patience is much appreciated.”

The jurors originally were called for a term of service running only from April to May.
