FitzyK23 said "Next, every jurisdiction has different standards on what counts as "disabled".
The ADA definition of disability has changed somewhat beginning Jan 01,2009 and this should be somewhat standard from state to state as a result. (I would have swore Fitzy was the one who told me about this-if so,see what all that school work does for a person. )The new ADAAA amendments to the federal ADA disabilities definition that are relevant to this are laid out on this Law Firms web page:
So I'm thinking any U.S. Judge should now release you with a Doctors statement of your diagnosis.
Would this be right, Fitzy?
heatmiser...Fitzy gives some great advice!
I just wanted to note that you can not mail a note in in all areas. Even though I had a medical note, I had to go to the day I was called and wait to be assigned to a jury then present that judge with my information. I could not call or mail in a note to be excused.
I would like to sit on a jury, I just would be uncomfortable if it was a bad day. I would also think I might be a bad juror since I would not eat if I was in the jury so I wouldn't have to go. Not eating affects my thought process.
