Jury Duty Summons to Appear
May 2, 2021 4:25pm CST
A few weeks ago I receive paperwork to appear for jury duty tomorrow. The main reason I got my COVID vaccines. Hopefully I will not be picked for the jury. It usually involves sitting a few hours as the attorneys asks each person questions and then they decide who is picked for the final jury. I have always been sent home early. That is a very good thing. I do not want to get picked for a trial. Fingers crossed they do not choose me for a juror. Have you ever been picked a juror on a trial?

I have never been picked. I have been excused most times . . . and then a couple times made it to orientation but everyone was let go afterwards. Last year I was summoned, but excused and rescheduled for January. So I did the online check-in each day - and ultimately didn't have to go in. Fingers crossed for you!!

I got a summons a few years ago. In the paperwork I received it said to check each day on their site to be sure I needed to go in. I never had to. *shrug* I was told that all you have to do to get out of jury duty is to tell them you hate whatever group of people the person the jury is supposed to be convened for belongs to. I don't know if that's true or not.
@CarolDM I would think because people are not supposed to be sitting close to one another that they would not have a jury trial. So that would mean that you have to wear your mask while sitting there and listening and not having a good time wearing a mask to really listen? I hope you can go home again and do not have to sit there. I have never done jury duty and now I live too far away I would not go on a plane right now or go back to do it.
