Juror appreciation week, recognizing residents who've given their time for jury duty (WPVI)

Juror appreciation week continues in the city, including various events recognizing residents who've given their time for jury duty.

At Philadelphia city council Thursday morning, a special resolution was passed, honoring jurors as quote: "indispensable pillars of the american justice system".

Judge Sheila Woods-Skipper, president of the city's common pleas court, accepted the resolution, and she said 20 percent of Philadelphians ignore jury summons when it comes, which continues to slow down the process.
