Jim, as soon as I got my letter for jury duty, I went to my spinal pain doctor, and he wrote a letter for me, and then I reported to the court at the appointed time, and I gave them the letter and proof of disability, and I was then released from jury duty a while later I got another notification, and I just called them and they corrected the record, and I have never been called again. There are allot of people that try and get out of serving jury duty, and that is why they want proof to excuse you from it. If I could I would be more than happy to serve on it, I just feel it is one of our responsibilities as citizens of our great nation. But with that said, when your in pain, it is a hassle to have to prove to everyone, just to get out of stuff that you can not do! I guess it is just the price we have to pay!!!
Good Luck to YOU!
