“Any non-discretionary charge added to a restaurant or bar customer’s bill, regardless of what it’s called, is a service charge,” Mollie Steinemann, the Colorado Restaurant Association’s manager of government affairs, told Denverite in a written statement. “Auto-gratuities fall into this category, as do things like health and wellness charges, back-of-house service charges, and anything else that a customer can’t opt into. Service charges are considered revenue and operators are required to collect sales tax on them.”
Service fees do not function like tips, which are non-compulsory gifts from the customer directly to the staff. Instead, service fees are simply an additional form of revenue. They bring in additional funds that owners can then distribute as they see fit.

eJury provides an attorney the opportunity to "pre-try" the case before it goes to trial in front of an actual jury at the courthouse. Cases at the courthouse are usually tried to juries of 12 people. At eJury, each case is tried to a minimum of 50 people. This provides the attorney with a tremendous amount of feedback which he/she will use to establish a settlement value, find strengths and weaknesses in the evidence, learn "public" attitudes, improve jury selection, discover the most effective arguments.
eJury is open to residents in all 50 states. The number of cases available for participation will vary greatly depending on your residence. Jurors living in major metropolitan areas receive more cases for participation than jurors living in rural areas.
For each verdict rendered, eJurors are paid $5 - $10 depending on the length of the case. The amount to be paid will be shown at the top of each case. You certainly won't get rich serving as an eJuror, but just one case a week would probably pay for your Internet access. Payments are made via PayPal.
