Mr.Brown - Thank you for your reply. May be I did not do a good job at posting my question. Let me try rephrasing it - My question did not revolve around attending my own trial. I am an immigrant in this country and hence have never been called on jury duty. By being a part of the audience for an ongoing case, I wanted to first hand experience the court system and the jury trial before either re-hiring my attorney or finding a new one for my case. My only attempt was to know if it was worth taking my case to trial or settling pre-trial.
That makes much, much more sense. If you're in LA, just head down to the main criminal court building downtown (Clara Shortridge Foltz Building, 210 West Temple Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012, sometimes called "CCB,") go to the information desk, and ask someone there what courts have jury trials that day. You're guaranteed that on any given day at CCB there will be several active trials and they're all open to the public.
Prepare yourself to be bored to death.
