    Default Jury selection.. o yay me

    I received a letter today, explaining my name came up for 'possible' jury duty.. I have to send back the questionnaire and then the judge will decide whether im suitable or not.. I *almost* certain I will be able to get out of it for two reasons.. one.. I can't sit in a hard chair for more than 30 MAX without my back going into spasms.. and secondly I doubt I would make a very helpful juror with my ADD Dx.. I have a very difficult time with some important things. like remembering vital details, organizing facts..etc.. im really hoping they let me go on this one.. what do you think my chances are.

    just tell the you support the kkk, you are bi polar, and will use this as a learning experience to better hate (whatever race the person on trial might be). They'll pick you for sure after that...or arrest you. your call really.

    I never get them but then again I have a record so that may be why as someone once told me those with records can not be jurors

    I went through that last year, they called me to show up at the courthouse on two different occasions then cancelled at the last minute.

    I may be in the minority, but I LOVED serving. The case was really interesting. I would love to do it again for a criminal trial. Civil wouldn't be so fun.
    I am not sure how having ADD would allow you to opt out.

    Gotta say, I know you're joking, but I really didn't appreciate this post Just because someone is bi polar, doesn't mean they don't/can't/shouldn't participate in a jury.
