My Birthday Present
    #3751463 - 02/08/05 05:34 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

On my birthday I have to show up at court for jury duty. This is my first time... any ideas to get out of it? I hear that if you sound like a racist they get rid of you immediately. I should have done what my friend did, he put his political affiliation as Nazi Party and he's never gotten a jury duty notice. :cool:

Bring an ax and chop the jury's head off, that way they won't be able to say you're guilty.

Well...I remember when I got a notice for Jury Duty. I laughed out loud. I was broke, practically homeless, and self-sabotaging. So I threw it away and forgot about it. And I never got in trouble for doing that, so it might be you could do it to. BUT, I heard that they could really give you shit if you don't go...it just never happened to me.

Honestly how I got out of it is to have an opinion. Lawyers dont like opinions especially critical ones where you sound like you're analyzing the arguments.

You should go and see if it is a cool case. Like if it was some murder case it could be interesting. Or if it were a drug case you could help the guy out. If its something dumb like a public indecency case you should just do what others have suggested. At least thats what I would do.

probably won't even be picked for anything, you'll just sit in a room with people... bring a book.

my dad has gotten the letter multiple times, he just ready to act racist if they ever pick him. he is self-employed so he actually loses alot of money and time towards his buisness if he goes. i got out of mine because i moved and was no longer a resident of the county.

well, if your 18 or older (and you damm well should be :wink:) you can expect that letter sometime within the next three years.
