Jury duty question

I have jury duty next week. That doesn’t bug me too much, but I just went in late March. I figured out the reason I keep getting notices is because I am registered to vote in LA, but my address with the DMV is in Hacienda Heights.

Last time I served in Norwalk. I was there most of the day but was never called. I just sat in jury room all morning and in the afternoon all jurors who had not been called were excused and not required to show up the next day.

Since I didn’t serve on a jury, does anyone know if I’ll still be required to go to jury duty this next time even though it’s been less than a year? The FAQ’s that came with the notice aren’t too clear on this.

  1. You should have gotten some sort of certificate of service either when you were excused or via mail (I can’t remember how I got mine.) There should be a number on your summons which you can call and explain your situation to them. You shouldn’t have to go again (unless you want to)

  2. I just served last month, was released w/o serving on a jury and was told we were exempt from jury duty for a year.

    They did give us certificates of service upon our release that day–they were green half-sheets of paper–so you should have received one of those.

    If not, you’ll have to jump through a hoop or two more, most likely, but you should not have to serve ’til next March (that is, unless “me” said above, it floats your particular boat).

  3. Cindy, I just had jury duty a few weeks ago. They said if anyone gets called again before a year has passed, they should mail in a copy of their proof of service with the summons.

    I don’t know what I did with mine, but I guess I should find it and put it somewhere safe.

  4. WE MUST REFORM THE JURY DUTY SYSTEM. There are 5 million Angelenos, yet the same group of ‘jury duty’ people keep getting pulled.

    The lazy, government employees don’t want to search for new jurors.

    SOLUTION: FIRE THE GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES AND REPLACE THEM WITH PRIVATE COMPANIES.

    SOLUTION 2: WE MUST ENCOURAGE SMART PEOPLE TO HAVE MORE CHILDREN. THE DUMB ARE OUTBREEDING THE SMART.
