Default Summoned for jury duty, freaked

I work late nights and my sleep schedule is 6AM-2PM or so

is that enough for an exemption? cops and authority freak me out and I'm freaked the fuck out

I can't do this on no sleep, or have to attend a multiple day trial on early mornings with my job (I also wouldn't get paid to skip, it's just dumb pizza delivery)

also, I believe some charges are completely unjust (drug laws come to mind) and wouldn't hesitate to bring up jury nullification ()

i know this whole post sounds dumb but also i feel like everything sounds dumb in front of the face of the Law. i feel like i'm gonna piss myself or have a heart attack or kill myself [like seriously i have not wanted to die, like actually fucking die, this hard since the darkest year of my life. fuck this] or something. i can't stress enough how much this scares the hell out of me

That sucks Ram maybe call your therapist and/or doctor and ask if they will write something that says u can’t do it b/c medical reasons. Also call whatever number they give u on the summons and ask how you are supposed to document an exemption, so u know what to provide to prevent any problems

have you been chosen for an actual jury? or just summoned? I've been summoned before and not selected, and I was able to go home. They call more people than they need.

what are the exemptions for jury duty in your location. Those rules vary from place to place. If work is one of your biggest issues, perhaps you'll be able to get time off if you're selected. Where i was employers were required to grant time off for Jury Duty.

If you don’t want to get selected just tell them you hate cops, lawyers and judges.

Same here.

I actually wanted to be selected, though.

the letter says, with checkboxes:
  • hardship
  • extreme inconvenience
  • necessity

cause like *to me* having to switch around my whole damn sleep schedule [in case you can't tell i have slight autism and cannot function without proper sleep], or, if picked, have to sit in a courtroom all day then have work all night, is definitely the first two, if not three

i think it would be super fascinating, and pretty empowering to be able to save someone from being fucked by the system, but there's just....too much going on in a different timezone of my life

Dude if you don’t want to be selected just walk in and say “all cops are bastards” or “black lives matter”
Good to go

I've successfully deferred my last two summons, but I have a legitimate necessity that would make jury duty requirements too disruptive. Are you in therapy? Maybe cite a therapy schedule that you can't interfere with, and mental health concerns.

If that doesn't work, then just act unqualified during selection.

definitely in therapy. i probably am overqualified for realizing cops are evil, most sentencing is too harsh, judges robes are a dumb element of pomp/circumstance/power

It's not at all hard to get out of these things, is it?

I was only called once and simply could not be fucked. As far as I recall, responding in writing with the first excuse that came to mind completely did away with the issue.

I would claim "extreme inconvenience" because of your schedule. I don't think you are out of line trying that.

Don't listen to this advice! If the court thinks you are lying or trying to say something shocking to get out of jury duty you run the risk of a contempt charge. I know someone who was fined by a judge for trying to say they were racist (as a way of getting out of it).

yeah I'm not an expert, but I think saying you work nights and have regular medical appointments and it would be an extreme inconvenience would prob get you out of it unless your county is slammed or something

Saying you're anti-cop isn't going to hold you in contempt, you moron. Saying you're a racist is a bit different. If I say "I don't approve of the police due to their treatment of PoC" that's definitely not "in contempt". lol

you don't know how a judge is going to react. it's best to protect yourself and not take risks in a courthouse. And if you think the judicial system isn't often punitive towards people with leftist views, especially in matters of racial and economic justice, you're crazy.
