    Knock on wood, I've always dodged the bullet too. Been picked a few times, but have only had to actually show up once. All the others were plea bargained, or cancelled for whatever reason.

    Been on 2 jurys...one was a discrimination case, other one I ended up being jury foreman...on that one, it was an accidental shooting and we ruled "can't fix stupid" and let him go with 6 months supervised probation...hated to miss work, but it was fun...

    I have been called for jury duty twice.
    First time was during Desert Storm - Uncle Sam wouldn't let me go.
    Second time was for a criminal case. I was asked if I had problems sentencing someone to state prison. Told them the only problem I have with prison sentences is 'time off for good behavior'. Didn't get picked for some reason.

    I got picked three times one summer about 5-6 years. They told me the computer picked me when I complained. It was interesting, but made for a long summer.

    It always helps to have someone on the inside to get you out of that. :cheers:

    Overall, it's a pain, finding parking...sitting and waiting...but, I don't mind...guess it's my way of serving since I didn't do any military service...

    I registered to vote finally last year. Then got a letter that I may get picked for jury duty for the next 6 months I believe and dad did also at the same time. Since me and my dad are 2 of the 3 managers at our place of business it wasn't going to work. We wrote them a letter and I got taken off. He had jury duty this week:claphands:. All the years I worked in town I wouldn't have minded it.
