A:  Learn English in a hurry Do like all the other people who cant speak our language.... smile and nod your head.. and say si si ... WTF eh !!! jeez... nodd there head and agree. lol How can they possibly be American citizens without being able to speak any english at all? Just show up, they''ll get sent home and probably wont have to go back for a really long time. Learn to speak english before they go. They still need to show up.

They still have to call and if it say they have to come in they will have to go in and talk to some one.They dont care what your excuse is now adays you have to go to

I have just been called for jury duty. I am concerned that my employer will be upset by my absence at work. What are my rights?

If you have been called to serve on a jury in federal district court, the jury System Improvements Act protects you and all employees from discharge, intimidation and coercion by an employer due to the employee''s service on a jury in federal court.

Almost every state has a law which protects employees from...

How do they determine who is called for jury duty?

A:  Random choice from the active voter roles gets you called in. Then there is a selection process involving the attorneys and judge. I have been a registered voter since 1989 and have never been called for jury duty. I''m willing but not asked. Further points It''s important that there is a definite formula, such as every 8,129th name on the list. Anything else could lend itself to manipulation. Even if you are called for jury service, don''t get too excited. I was once called ages ago. As a gang of 5 young men was going to be tried (and all can object to jurors) a large number of people were

If it is a slow trial day, you will mostly stay in the juror herding area, where all the unchosen jurors sit and wait. If it is a day with a bunch of trials, you will go from courtroom to courtroom.
