    My husband was summoned to jury duty a few months ago. He told them he would be getting married/out of town, and got an extension until after the wedding. L.A. county is on top of things because we get back from the wedding and his notice to report was in the mailbox. He called Sunday night and the automated system said he didn't have to report and to call again Monday night. He calls tonight and it says he must report on Tuesday :o(

    We're all for civic duty and all that, but he's so bummed because he's sick of his boss like a lot of people here and had an interview set up for Tuesday (it was the only day this new place could see him and he hoped he would luck out and not have to report again).

    Anyway, cross your fingers that he doesn't get put on a trial and that this potential employer is willing to postpone his interview.

        Hopefully it'll be cancelled or he'll be dismissed quickly.

          Jamy I pick jurors all the time. There are ways to get out of it by not being a desirable candidate. If it is for civil trial he just has to pay attention to what kind of case it is. For example if it is a car accident all he has to do when he is called is answer questions in a way that will seem like he has a bias. By this I don't mean a bias against race, gender, etc. What I mean is he could say something like "My wife got into a car accident once and she sued and she didn't get any money. I am still upset about that." They will send him home. Or if it were a medical malpractice case he could say "Most of my friends are doctors, I love them." Either one of these comments shows a prejudice to one side and he will not be picked.

          *In the meantime I will keep my fingers crossed*

                Our court eliminates jurors when they say they can't pass judgment on others because their religion says only God can do that. Or X crime happened to my kid, sister, mom, etc and it would be extremely difficult to be fair and impartial.

                  Yup Kate same here. Anything that shows that you won't be fair or impartial will get you off.
