We've had some high-profile trials recently in the suburbs.

Two verdicts in major cases were handed down Tuesday in DuPage County: Johnny Borizov of Willow Springs was convicted of orchestrating a triple murder in Darien, and Gordon Vanderark, formerly of Wheaton, was found guilty of soliciting the murder of not only his wife but also of a prosecutor and a judge.

In both trials, the jury deliberated less than a day.

Have you ever been on a jury in a criminal case? How long did you deliberate, and what was the outcome?

How about in a civil trial? Did you find for the plaintiff or the defendant?
