People wonder why the system is in the toilet. I don't, because part of it is people with the OP's attitude who are dragging it down. Hope you don't ever need a jury trial, bit. Maybe those
people won't feel like it's such a bother and an inconvenience to do their civic duty.
I have my doubts that you JUST got the summons. My summons came at least a month ahead, because it takes that long to schedule a trial date. You had to have known it was a possibility long before now, regardless. They don't just spring jury duty on you.
I've been on two juries in my life and the second time was earlier this year, and I just got another survey from my county concerning jury duty. I don't think
I can be called more than once every two years but if the county says once a year and calls me, then I'll go.
People want all the conveniences of a jury trial when they're on the wrong end of the law, but don't actually ever want to have to serve on one themselves. Pathetic.
