I was on a mock jury not too long ago, and it was pretty fun. I can't talk about what trial it was for, due to a confidentiality agreement, but I can tell you that it was a pretty big case. Being a juror for a few hours on a Saturday paid pretty good too. For me, it came out to about 80 bucks an hour.
The reason for mock juries is so that a law firm can decide whether or not a case is worth pursuing or defending. I don't see a problem with that whatsoever. Some law firms will have several mock trials, with different jury makeups, before making a decision whether or not to take on a case, or to pursue a certain strategy.
BTW, if any of you are interested in being on a mock jury, check out your local Craig's list. That is how I got my jury gig.

But kudos for the cash. Sounds like an easy way to make money. I hope people that do these things take this very serious and not there just to earn some easy money. This is another reason how these things could create bias. The jury is just blase about it and just there for the green.
Dan, not saying you did any of this and know you are a stand up guy
