She was VERY assertive. I wil admit that this was several years ago, before the more strict jury duty rules kicked in.
She probably rented the kids just so she could get out of jury duty.

I've seen people do all sorts of stuff just to get thrown out of jury service. One young woman took pictures inside the courtroom with her smartphone during jury selection - she was warned once, and then thrown out when she kept doing it. Another young woman had made fashionista posts to her Facebook about the shoes of potential female jurors along with pictures. Someone found it and told the judge, and she was gone.

Nope; they were hers. I talked to her in the elevator. These days they probably would have told her that finding a sitter was her problem and that after she found one, she could take a seat with everyone else.

Yes, if you read the fine print on the back of your summons, you'll see that at age 70 you can opt out of jury duty forever.
