12. to a point, yes

 

but in most jurisdictions each side only gets to eliminate so many jurors.

So what happens is when good people tray to get out of it, they leave fewer good people in the pool, and that makes it easier for the lawyers to dismiss them.

More good people in the pool= harder for the lawyers to eliminate them all= more good people who make it through into the jury.

Even staying until you get dismissed, thereby using up one of the challenges, is helping do your civic duty- it means maybe one other good person gets to stay.
