Re: Jury Duty Summons same week as vacation
Chances are you will be dismissed on the first day.

If not, you will be called for jury selection.. and when this happens the judge will ask you if you will be willing to "follow his/her instructions" --at this point you will raise your hand and say... "No I cannot follow your instructions, I will retain the right to judge both the law and the facts concerning this case."

Please refer to the FIJA website (Fully Informed Jury Association) and look up the facts behind "jury nullification."

When you state this before the judge you will have multiple supreme decisions on your side... know them and be able to quote them to the judge. The judge will shit their pants knowing that you now know about "jury nullification" and then dismiss you right then and there.

Works all the time, guaranteed.

Re: Jury Duty Summons same week as vacation
Just go down to the office personally. I got summoned for the first time ever a couple of months ago, and I went down to the clerk's office personally right after I received my summons. I home school my special needs son so I got a letter from my son's therapist saying he couldn't be left alone. If you get in there quick and take care of it right away, they are more likely to let you slide, then if you wait and others decline before you get a chance to.

I just ignore them until they're sent certified mail or delivered by a process server. They can't prove that you received it.

Yup.
What this guy said. Crumple it up and toss.
No one can prove you got it unless someone knocks on your door and hands it to you.
In that case just dont answer the door.

Also say it is against your religion/belief to judge and if they continue say they are discriminating against your beliefs *whatever they are, do research*.
Or act very biased! Or declare you are a caretaker for someone ill.
Do research.

Except he decided to post it on the world wide web that he received it.

Re: Jury Duty Summons same week as vacation
This BS really pisses me off. I came home today to find a jury duty summons waiting for me, low and behold, the mofos scheduled me the same week as my vacation out of state. There is a vast clusterfuck conspiracy going on here. Any suggestions? Thanks for letting me rant, but I haven't had a vacation in ages and then this happens.

I feel you're pain. I was married for 34 years and my wife died of cancer in 2010. One week after she died I got a jury duty summons. I called and they could care less. I had to go.

As far as it being a conspiracy, well I don't know. It sure struck me as suspicious because of the timing of it. They probably knew I frequented GLP and was a conspiracy theorist.

Just imagine if you were on trial for you're life and I was picked to be a juror in you're trial. I can tell you for a fact that mentally I was in no condition to judge anything.

My whole world had collasped and I did not care about anything at the time. It was unfair to me and more unfair to any potential person on trial I might have had to be a juror in their case.

Interesting. I got my first jury duty summons right after I found this place, too. I ended up getting out if it, though, because of work.

Ok evidently op is correct, there is a conspiracy against him some how, but it could be a pronoid conspiracy instead of a paranoid conspiracy like your higher self is trying to keep you from going on this vacation for some protective reason, possibly Ebola. Perhaps with gentleman who lost his wife there was also a protective benign influence.

I filled mine out with a crayon.

I have never received another summons since.

That was over 10 years ago.

At some point bring up jury nullification. Bringing that up usually results in getting kicked out of the court. Also express severe disdain towards prosecutors, police and anyone who works for the government in the court system. If you're too biased against one side, they won't take you.
