Sherry Spears, juror and public services manager for the Fresno County Superior Court, said an employee made a wrong computer entry, resulting in long lines forming outside of the jury assembly room, The Fresno (Calif.) Bee reported Wednesday.
Spears said 100 of the potential jurors were retained for two courtrooms and the other 200 were given the opportunity of waiting to see if they would be needed or calling back at 5 p.m. for future instructions.
Spears said court employees gave the potential jurors free parking passes to lessen the stress of the experience.
