    How to get outta jury duty

    She entered the courtroom, took a seat in the jury box, looked at Muhammad and said, "You are a filthy murderer. You deserve to die."

    Re: How to get outta jury duty

    I just got called for jury duty. Had to fill out the forms and turn them in the other day. I was trying to find funny ways to fill out some of the questions (which I found very personal) to possibly get myself disqualified.

    Easy. Tell the court:

    "I want to be on this jury SO badly. I can spot a guilty person a mile away..."

    They will thank you for your time.

    Mrs. U was in a jury pool where a couple of the prospective jurors professed to having a deep, ingrained prejudice against the ethnic group of the defendant. They didn't last 5 minutes in the jury pool.

    I don't understand why people want to get out of jury duty. It's a civic obligation.

    And yes, I have served on a jury. Was it fun? No. Would I do it again? Of course.
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.

    I wouldn't mind serving on a jury.

    But I'm a caucasian male with a graduate degree.

    As long as I'm living in the south, there's no way I'll ever be on a jury.

    I wouldn't mind doing it for a quick trial. The one time I had to go downtown for it the trial I was assigned to wound up lasting a month. What am I supposed to do, take a month off of work?

    And yeah, I did cheese my way out of it. The defense attorney was stressing how you could have a certain amount of alcohol in your system and still be legal to drive, so when questioned I went into a routine of how one drink was too many and you shouldn't have any alcohol in your system if you drive. That got me a quick ejection from the jury pool.

    I agree creek, and have served before.

    Right now, I have way too much on my plate (so to speak).

    I fit that description, too and I got selected for a jury back when I lived up north. Down here, I agree that I'd probably be too much of a wild card to get picked.

    I've never even been picked to be a part of the jury pool.

    Re: How to get outta jury duty

    Wow, I'm glad to see a thread on jury duty. Forgive my ignorance on it, I received a questionnaire myself to fill out a few days ago, the first time I've ever gotten one. The way I understand it, I am filling it out to be apart of the jury pool... is that correct? I guess I am trying to figure out if I automatically am interviewed since I got a questionnarie or if I am simply in the pool to be interviewed now and won't necessarily be in the pool just because I filled out my info. Could anyone please help an informed soul while we have a thread on it?

    I know a guy who used diabetes to get out of jury duty.

    That's all I got.

    Everyone should serve on a jury once, its very interesting. Served on a murder/wrongful death jury about 10 years ago it lasted 3 days very informative and eye opening.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    That is what I got. I had to fill it out and return it (they said) within two days. It places you in a pool for interview and possible selection.
