Jury Duty

Got a summons for jury duty today. I have to be on-call starting June 1st for 5 days. Hopefully I won't have to report, but if I do, The courthouse I'm supposed to report to is only about 7 miles from my house. Problem is, the last time I was told to report to that courthouse, they changed the venue to the BIG courthouse down in Van Nuys, CA (about 25 miles away) and I had to drive over the hill down there. I hated it there. I didn't get picked that time. Only had to sit in the jury room for 1/2 day and was excused by noon. The next time I got summoned, I had to go down to the courthouse in San Fernando, CA (about 15 miles away). I got called on a panel that time, but got excused because the defense lawyer didn't like an answer I gave for one of his questions.
Hopefully if I do have to report, it will be at our local Santa Clarita, CA courthouse as stated on my summons. But I'm hoping I won't have to report.

  1. Mom just got summoned too, for the first time in her 80-some yrs. I was called once but did not have to stay. Hope it all goes well and at the courthouse it says. I had to drive 30 miles.
