Legit Ways to Get Out of Jury Duty


I take a piece of string, and sit quietly while I tie a hangman's noose, hold it up, swing it back and forth, then untie it and start tying another one...

This has worked four times in three different states...

Be an educated individual. Lawyers like to try cases to a dumb jury. Have actual knowledge and a formed logical opinion of the subject of the trial, especially if it is a civil trial.

Just serve. It's part of the price you pay to be an American. .

Have you even been a part of a voir dire? They can remove you from the pool...

Judges can get pissy with BS excuses, but if you give some vague answer like your god doesn't allow you to judge other people, I'd bet one of the attorneys will toss you.

re: Legit Ways to Get Out of Jury Duty


being married to an assistant district attorney work pretty well for getting out of local jury duty. Only got called once, I didn't even say anything the judge zeroed in and asked if the last name was a coincidence and I said no and he said get out.

I have always felt that they should only pick retired people to be in a jury. They have nothing else to do and would get a kick out of it.

If you really can't figure out how not to get picked once you're in the box, you have no business judging others.

re: Legit Ways to Get Out of Jury Duty


Trying to get out of jury duty is as bad as draft dodging. Why do you hate your country so much? It gives you the chance to directly make a difference in how your country is being run and somehow it is cool to get out of it.

And don't even get me started with these prima donna f-ing doctors who whine about med mal lawsuits and the cost of litigation and then deem themselves too important to be on a jury.

Can I get a "HE MAD"?!!!

I'd gladly do jury duty. Your employer has to pay for it right? Sounds like fun to me.

What if you don't like unconstitutional forced labor?







Also, to answer the OP, just start talking about jury nullification

Only been summoned once, had my wisdom teeth removed the day before I was to report. Had a nurse fax something the day of surgery to the Judges office.
