    Why?
    I've done it twice

    IMO it's worse the Chinese water torture.

    I would rather be stuck on a airplane full of people with no room to spare for a 5 hour flight than do jury duty ever again.

    That would require one to think outside of their own personal box.
    Not very 'American' IMO.

    lmao

    you dont know much about court do you?

    the American way is to argue your case..... i argue my case and win, the lawyers loose. WOOHOO!!!

    the judge can say... sorry not good enough you are juror #1
    the lawyer can say fine.... you are juror #1 and not use his challenge. They want to play... ill burn their challenge allotment.

    I don't take any pleasure in it. It is important though.

    My family laughs at it too. That's how much I hated doing it. I'm all for doing my civil duty but I do it in other ways.

    It's a mandatory civic duty here. You simply don't get easily dismissed from jury duty in England. There are a small class of people barred from service such as those having been in prison in the last ten years. The fine for non attendance is $1500-ish. You join a pool of jurors and are randomly chosen or not, to sit on a jury that day. You attend for duty for ten working days unless discharged earlier.
    Nobody gets to try and game the jury membership to their advantage, and although the service is for two weeks, cases may go on for longer. You can defer for a few reasons, but you need evidence, and you'll get another request in the near future.
    Thanks from Ian Jeffrey
