I know there's a lot of people out there like to say "exacatacaly" when they mean "exactly." That don't mean I have to like it though.

What are your feelings on "exactamundo"?

I mean...would you rather just have to go in for the day despite there being no trials scheduled?

Seems like some hourly workers having a little bit of scheduling difficulty is better than the lost productivity of every single scheduled juror?

It sort of depends. It used to work like that in California, and the really jacked up thing was that if they told you to go to work the next day you didn't get credit for that day against the week or ten days or whatever the length of time was you were on the hook. "One week" of jury service could basically screw you up schedule-wise for like three weeks. If the day you're told (late the day before) you don't have to report still counts against your commitment, that's a bit better.

Part of the problem is it's not documented anywhere how long you need to keep calling in. I'd assume that they sent out summons starting every Monday, so if they don't need jurors for the entire week, you can stop calling, but it doesn't say that anywhere.

I just want to get called in so I can say something about eyewitness testimony being unreliable (I listened to Serial, god dammit!) or jury nullification, go home, and not have to deal with it for at least 2 years.

Well, did you run after it? Or did your condition of low T prevent you

That's a shitty way to do it.

When I was called in MN, it was for a fixed amount of time (I think one week of actual service, and a second week of secondary). If you were let go early or not called in, then your commitment was done.

Here in Chicago, we do single day jury pools. If you get a call-in arrangement and don't have to go...you are completely done, there are new people coming in tomorrow. Nice because you don't have to block off a week, and since most people won't end up on a jury, it doesn't fuck with people's incomes that much. But if you get stuck on a multi-day trial, it kind of sucks since you thought you only had to go for a day.

Yeah, California (LA County at least) now uses a system like what you've described Chicago using. Much better than the old system.

Every time I've had Jury duty I've been called in and chosen to sit on trial. Every single time.

Guess you're not racialist enough.

Turns out many people in my social circle cannot say the name of my cat. I don't think it is hard to say, but that is probly because I have had the French language in my mente for more than half my years on the terraqueous globe. Maybe I will have to give them a alternate name of which to call her by little easier to say such as Ginette.

I'm so glad you need to be a member of a political party to be jury here.
