    I got out of jury duty several times with various excuses

    Here in new york they say no excuses, so when they sent me those questionaires I dont send them back so this is the reason for the subpoena. Then it says if I don't appear I will be fined, I don't see why they make it such a big deal.

    Call and if they don't excuse. Go do your civic duty.

    Jury duty is a big deal. It is the heart of our justice system. If you are able to serve, do the responsible thing. If you have a legitimate reason to be excused, they will do it. I have done jury duty three times in various courts without a problem.

    Why do feel being disabled allows you to skip serving? I've been summoned everyplace I have lived usually within 6 months of living there. Courthouses are accessible with the exception of a few in rural areas but that is another discussion.

    Go. its kind of fun. You get to meet strangers in the waiting area. Listen to all the lame excuses people use to try to get out of it. If you get on the jury, you get to hold the fate of some strangers life in your hands. A real feeling of power.

    I don't ever want to be on jury duty!!! I'd rather have a tooth pulled than be on jury duty.
