jury duty on The Good Wife

I appreciated that The Good Wife portrayed a person with auditory processing disorder, but I was surprised that it disqualified him from jury duty. When I was called for jury duty, the judge told us that the ADA required him to make reasonable accommodation to allow everyone to serve. The accommodation that juror needed did not look unreasonable: he appeared to function just fine when he could see and hear you talking.

Do the lawyers know which juror is the alternate? I did not know that. The jurors don't get to know, because they're afraid the alternate won't take the duty seriously.

Got to go to bed. I'm doing a.m. treatments at the raptor center tomorrow. Neal's going to pick me up at ten to seven. A.M. In the morning.
