Jury Summons Tomorrow?

by admin on September 6, 2010

I have to show up tomorrow for jury summons and was curious my chances of not being chosen. I’ll serve sometime if they want but now is really not a good time. I am a student online (so still technically not an excuse to get out of it), just found out i’m pregnant a week ago and am taking a trip from here in florida, all the way up to Indiana where ALL my family is to annouce the good news at Christmas. On the small questionaire I said YES to ‘has you or any member of your family ever been accused, or witness in a criminal case, have you or a fam member made claim for personal injury, has a claim for personal injury been made against you or any member in your family, and have you or any member of your immediate family been party to any lawsuit. Honestly the answer is yes to all of those. Will they look at me as too biased based on those questions? And what is the jury summons like? How long does it take?

If you are in school, pregnant, and said yes to that question, I really doubt if you will be chosen. Here in california we have a pool of about 60 people to choose from. It takes about 4 hours. Sometimes the whole case is dropped at the last moment.
