Notes / Description: 

In a prior trial Neely was summoned to the court, and agreed to appear, serving as a juror for three days. Following the third day he refused to come back to the jury. He argued that the jury fees were to be collected by the County from the losing party in the case and that the County or State has no power to enforce the collection of these fees.
