Gee's Bend - Franklin case - Trial in April 2008?

Attorneys for Lucinda Pettway Franklin and the Arnetts met earlier this month as ordered by U.S. Magistrate Judge Bert W. Milling, Jr to outline a few specifics of the case. Mrs. Franklin claims two family quilts over 100 years old were stolen. (The quilts were returned within days of the suit being filed.)

Both sides have agreed they would be ready for trial by early April 2008 and anticipate the trial would last from 2 - 3 days, not including jury selection. All discovery is anticipated to be completed by early January 2008. At this time, it's too early to evaluate whether a settlement can be agreed to. Stay tune!

Question: How would you feel about being on this jury?
