Q: 

jury duty Questionnaire

A:  You did not indicate in what state this was taking place or indicate much about what questions were being asked, other than DOB and home and work phone numbers. In general, the court can require that kind of information on a jury questionnaire. The court probably can''t ask for just anything it likes, but certainly information that is useful for selecting a jury can be asked. Name, address, and phone numbers are needed to contact you regarding jury service. DOB and SSN are needed to check for things like criminal records, as many states place limitations on the ability of persons convicted of crimes (usually felonies) from serving on a jury. In my state, and most others (perhaps all others)...

Q: 

jury duty - To Serve or Not to Serve

A:  You appear to be the perfect juror: you don''t have a hardship claim, and you take the process seriously. Of course they love you! One thing you can try (if you get as far as voir dire) is to ask the bailiff if you can speak to the judge - in my experience, there''s usually a point at which potential jurors have the opportunity to speak to the judge one-on-one if they need to. Tell the judge what you''ve told us - the judge may well give you a break. And if there''s enough room on the jury survey to explain this, do that too....

Q: 

Jurry duty?

A:  are you registered to vote? that''s how jurors are selected. if you aren''t registered to vote, then get off your butt & do it. jury duty is one of the small prices Americans pay to be free & to enjoy all our rights. sure it''s a hassle but freedom is better than the alternative of living under a dicatorship. Are you a registerd voter? Only registered voters get picked in my county. Yes, it is a weird lottery system, and yes it''s based off the voting roles in most US precincts. For over twenty years I wasn''t called once, then in the next six years I was called three times (the maximum allowable in my precinct). Go figure it. I''m 34 and just got my jury duty

Q: 

Is the state going to deny my unemployment benefits?

A:  jury duty is a legal requirement. I would explain the situation to the employment office. However, if your uemployment system works like ours, you would need to report whatever you received as jury duty pay, which might be deducted from your benefits. . I think I would try to speak to some at your employment office about it, to clarify how it works when you have jury duty. Technically, you are still available to work. Employers are required to give employees time off for jury duty. Therefore if you had a job, you would be taking off for it. There''s no need to every...

Q: 

Real Life Runaway jury?

A:  Is Charlie Rosenthal still the D.A. in Harris County, edgar? He still be, merry andrew. Totally unprofessional on the prosecutor''s part. This kind of conduct calls for an ethics inquiry. I''m intrigued by this statement in the story: In a county where only about 20 percent of those summoned for jury duty showed up last year, according to the District Clerk''s Office, Yules said such an experience could make people less likely to serve again. Does that mean that in TX it''s possible to just ignore a summons for jury duty without suffering any consequences, e.g. a hefty fine? You couldn''t do that in most states that I know of. I know lots of people who throw the summons away. I have to show...

Q: 

Dury duty (Scotland)

A:  She would have to contact the relevant liaison department at the Court ASAP outlining her reasons to be excused. She would then be advised accordingly. Seems a bit mean of the family she childminds for, though? we''re in wales so I don''t know if its the same but my partner just got called up for jury duty, he works in the building trade. He wrote a letter to the jury summoning officer asking to be excused because he was worried about the security of his job if he were to take this time off, due to the current economic situation. He was excused no questions asked. hope this helps! Firstly I apologise. I should have said jury duty. I was on a

Q: 

Is it pointless to serve on a jury?

A:  Appearing for jury duty is the (small) price one pays for a society ruled by laws made by the people....

Q: 

I''ve been selected to Grand jury for 6 months. What are my rights as far as my job/Benefits, pay?

A:  It depends on your state''s laws. "The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) does not require payment for time not worked, including jury duty. This type of benefit is generally a matter of agreement between an employer and an employee (or the employee''s representative). The Bureau of Labor Statistics'' (BLS) Employee Benefits Survey indicates that 87 percent of employers offer paid leave for jury duty service. While federal law does not, some state laws require employers to pay employees who are asked to serve jury duty." Talk to the judge. You may not be able...

Q: 

What are the odds that someone under 21 will get called to the jury pool?

A:  I was 21 when I had jury duty.. I didn''t get called but it doesn''t matter your age. The pick you based on numbers for a trail, and from there they ask you a series of questions. I don''t know anyone who has gotten picked why did this deserve 2 thumbs down? its my personal experience i had jury duty in june.. If you are a registered voter and/or have a driver''s license you have the same chance at being called as anyone else. If you are registered to vote, Your chances are just as good as anyone else out there. Odds will vary depending on the total number of registered voters, and of those folks,the proportion of them under the age of 21. ;-)= Various...
