I have been called up twice. Served once - the forst time.

Found it to be a very interesting experience.

I was on an attempted murder trial that lasted 2 weeks. We found them guilty of unlawful imprisonment instead of attempted murder and it all happened because of a drug deal gone bad. I really like the experience.

Take the Homer Simpson path and say you prejudiced against all races
Doesn't always work. Twice other people tried that shit in court and got called out in front of everyone to talk about it before they were dismissed. Lawyers will rip into you and make you look like an absolute racist moron to everyone else in the courtroom. I mean, it will work, but if you try it be prepared to be watching your back all the way to your car.

Never served.
  1. I postponed it in LA but coincidentally had a Nee York address when the date came around.
  2. I postponed in New York (a few years later) until the day before Thanksgiving which coincidentally happened to be a day that most judges took off. They sent me home.
Dunno how it is in NYC but in a big California county like Los Angeles you can miss two consecutive jury summons and the county judge won't do anything because they call up like a million people to the courthouse; the judge ain't got time to bench warrant all the people that missed jury duty.

The third summons the judge may pull the trigger and issue the bench warrant

Yep. It is better to do the bootlicker thing - just say that you think that if the police arrested someone, then they must be guilty.
