I was called once a very long time ago, and I reported to the court house, when all of us ( potential jurors) was there assembled in court, the judge asked if any of us had a valid reason why we should not be able to serve on jury duty, and I told him my reasons and then I was excused. A short time later ( several months ) I receive another summons for jury duty, I called the court house, and they explained what I needed to do, like like Jim1969 I got the form and gave it to my PM Doctor to fill out, and then I was never summons again. I have no problem (morally or mentally) with serving on a jury, but Physically I know I just could not sit more than a few minutes, without being in extreme pain. I have seen allot of people try to get out of jury duty, and they will use just about any excuse they can come up with to do it. Personally I think it would be an honor to serve on a jury, and I wish I could serve as a juror, and participate in our judicial process. Just another thing that CP takes away from us!
Just my thoughts about it!
