I was planning on doing this tomorrow. Glad I am not the only one who thinks this way BTW where do you park? (SB Courthouse)

Due to health reasons i cant serve jury duty but otherwise i would if i could. The judges have heard all the good & bad excuses & if they know anyone is lying you best be prepared to serve jury duty.

Funny. My lawyer told me back in the 70's how to get out of jury duty. The state has to prove you received the summons. Most people give receipt by calling them right back. The jury summons are not served properly. A summons has to be hand delivered. A lot of my mail gets lost in the system.

As far as the courts are concerned once they send out the summons you have been served. No one fights back so the govt gets away with it.

Those rules no longer apply. No one seems to get out of jury duty now. (I remember checking the box, "provide care for minor children," sending the form in and that was the end of it.) The last time I served, there were several people who gave excuses that seemed plausible to me (self employed, child care problems, long commute, students, etc). The judge told all of us that he was sorry but he wasn't listening to any hardship excuses; even he himself had to serve on jury duty.

But was the judge a hardship ? Ca only pays $15.00 a day after the first day of jury duty & 41 cents a mile one way. Cheap ass state. NY pays $40.00 a day + milage + lunch.

You should be shot on sight. Better yet, sent back to grade school to learn to write and spell correctly. Capitalization can be your friend so you don't come across as ignorant. Then again...

Ummm - the county needs to prove that a summons was received. Assumption does not = proof. Unless a jury summons is hand delivered and a signature of receipt is provided or it is sent certified mail(too expensive and the counties won't do it) then they have no evidence that you received a summons.

The FTA notices are just scare tactics - the court may have a record that they sent you something - but unless they can prove that you received it - they can't compel you to appear. Why do you think that one has to sign a traffic citation? Answer: because your signature acknowledges that you will appear in court. Unless you sign a jury summons - the court cannot prove that you received it.

A lady in yucaipa ignored her jury duty summons (failure to appear) & was arrested & jailed for 1 day. She was also fined $150.00. The police actually went to her home to arrest her.
