* The OJ Simpson Murder trial was the longest trial in U.S. History, beginning on January 24, 1995 to October 3rd, 1995. The jury was sworn in on November 9th, 1994, so they were attached to it for the better part of a year. The decision was rendered in four hours on October 2nd, 1995, but the judge held it off for a day due to the sheer size of the trial. Some years thereafter, at least a couple of the jurors publicly came forward and admitted that it was exactly because of the very lengthy trial that they jumped to the the verdict so quickly. At that point, they were simply utterly exhausted from being held up at the trial for nearly a year and just wanted to go home.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Parodied in the episode "The Boy Who Saw Too Much", the jury of Freddy Quimby's trial was all set to vote "guilty" from the moment they walked out of the courtroom (Freddy Quimby was just ''that'' ObviouslyEvil), and the only reason Homer becomes a RogueJuror is because he wants to exploit the free hotel stay they would get if they are deadlocked.

Added DiffLines:


[[folder:Web Comic]]
*In ''WebComic/{{GPF}}'' Fooker's trial (comic date 3/16/2002) is extremely short. Judge: You were only gone 5 minutes! Juror: Oh, we decided yesterday. Juror 8 has a squash game.

* In the WesternAnimation/{{Classic Disney Short|s}} ''Disney/PlutosJudgementDay'', Pluto has a nightmare where he is tried in hell by devil cats for the crime of attacking cats (which Pluto did earlier in the cartoon and which, because of it, Mickey Mouse warns his dog that he will have a lot to answer for on judgment day). As shown in the page image, the jury literally goes in and out a revolving door before finding him guilty, and the jurors leave so quickly that the first to enter come out before the rest have even come in.

* ''Series/{{Batman}}'': One episode ends with the Joker and Catwoman being tried. Their lawyer doesn't cross-examine any witnesses brought by the prosecution and doesn't try to introduce any evidence that could help his clients so it's not much of a surprise the jury's leader declares there's no need to step out of the court to deliberate. [[spoiler:The surprise is that they decide to acquit the defendants. When said juror's mustache starts falling, Batman figures out Catwoman and the Joker had their henchmen as the jury and they end up being arrested.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger'': Subverted. The Dekarangers' [[TransformationTrinket Licenses]] have a special mode that sends all known evidence and current bioreadings to "the highest court in the galaxy", getting a verdict back in eight seconds. The subversion comes from the "Ten Years Later" reunion special, which explains that the court handling the judgements is on a planet surrounded by a temporal distortion... so for every case, they've actually spent eight ''[[YearInsideHourOutside months]]'' deliberating.
