Does anyone know if having Bipolar Disorder Type II excuses one from jury duty?
 
I am appearing for the first time on 3/9 which I must do under the law, and obviously
the lawyers and judge will decide, but I am curious if anyone else here has been down this road.
 
Thanks,

Hi Cait,

I really haven't any idea. I had jury duty, but didn't mention my bipolar disorder.

Thank you for posting back to me. I am not necessarily looking to get out of it, I just didn't know how deeply they screen each potential juror.

Thanks again! wink

Yes, my bipolar never came up. I don't think it would unless it somehow was important to the case.
