I wish I could go. I was summoned once and when my name came up I told the judge that I was deaf and ever though I could read the court reporters writing on a screen it would not be the same as hearing it in court. I told him it would not be fair to all parties. He thanked me and let me go.

Beat it all dads isn't a convicted felon he just tells them that where he don't have to fool around with that crap \:D .

If a judge ever finds out he will be guilty of Perjury.
Sad part of the reason our justice system doesn't work is people not wanting the hassle of doing their duty.. A person is Innocent until proven guilty by a Jury of peers.

have served in the past and will again if called to do so. Was selected for two cases in the 2 weeks I served. On the second case I and another juror tied up the jury for three days. We were right in doing so witness changed story. Defendant was innocent.

I nor the other juror who held up the jury were selected to sit on another case.

I served as the jury foreman on a murder case last summer. I couldn't believe how many people tried to get out of it. It was a big case so they called up about 300 people. We took up 2 court rooms that was standing room only and when all was said and done, maybe 100 people were left. It was sad to see so many people try to get out of it or talk so bad about. It's your civic duty to serve!

All the reason I or any other American should ever need to serve on a jury is in the stories at the link. The Sixth Amendment, like the rest of the Constitution, was not created nor maintained without cost.
