Most of us have watched enough old westerns to remember when Judge Roy Bean, the hanging judge from Texas, needed a jury panel; he would go to the local saloon and quickly draft participants.

I have heard some of the older attorneys tell how the circuit judge in Pendleton County would order the sheriff to quickly round up a jury when needed for a court matter. The sheriff would head to the pool room, barber shop or some other loafing place, and in no time have a jury ready.
