Jury Duty
« on: March 29, 2009, 06:39:24 PM »

So I got summoned to do jury duty, returned back letter saying that I will do it since I couldn't get any excuse. Now that I heard that I might have a chance to get out of it at the selection. Anyone else here did jury duty before and have any stories to tell? Also, I heard that in BC, the names for jury duty was chosen from the list of ppl who voted, does anyone know if that's true?

I heard that if you say "oh boy, i can't wait to apply what i learned in my law courses in school to this!" and you'll likely not be chosen... or if you have extreme views. I think they want "average people" who don't know much about the law system and have views that are in the middle.

Again, I just heard this all... don't shoot the meesenger.  :tongue0024:

Just show up wearing a Princess Leia outfit from ANH, that'll disqualify you :)  (That's a side joke for anyone who saw the previous episode of 30 Rock...)

I think if you say you know the person or may have seen the person on the news it may disqualify you. Don't quote me on this.

How about you just show up, and do it. Doesnt mean you will get picked, cause you got the letter. I know people who went, and didnt get picked, for what ever reason.

do you remember Ren and Stimpy? there were to red neks on there that wanted to hang Ren and Stimpy for whatever reason, and they sang a song called "OH THE LORD LOVES A HANGIN',"  Just keep singing that when you go in, sure fire way of getting out of it

This is your civic duty to be apart of the process, so grow some balls and go and actually learn something, instead of trying to run away with your tail between your legs.

I'm pretty sure, from the number of women there last time I was summoned, that having to "grow some balls" was not a prerequisite.  If you have no legit excuse to get out of it though, you should go.  You may want to pack a lunch and take a good book with you.
