Do your jury duty.

Manhattan Criminal Court:
The boring introductory speech takes about 45 minutes, and should begin relatively on time. Therefore, coming 45 minutes late is no big deal.

If you have a deferment, don't waster your time at the criminal court. Go straight to 60 Centre Street room 139. The line can get busy, so try to come at a good time.

lol

I must say though, any frum jew from Rockland County who gets federal jury duty should serve, they might end up on the trial of the people who got picked up last week....
I'm sure they will make sure no Jew will be there.

not really up to them, each side will get a limited amount of jurors to toss for no reason

To me it seemed like they get to do whatever they want and they would have no problem dismissing any jew on that jury.
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

if enough people show up (who receive summonses) to serve, and are dismissed (solely) for being Jewish it would be grounds for an appeal.

I have got in the last half year 2 questioners by mail to apply for jury duty but i ignored it,
Yesterday i got a letter stating that since i ignored the previous letters, i have to come down personally to downtown bklyn to fill out the questioner
Within 10 days of the letter, or i can get fined or imprisonment,
Anybody here with previous experience on this ?
Same thing just happened to me anyone have any experience with this? What did you do? What happened?

How about you do your civic duty and stop trying to beat the system. You want to vote then do your duty.

I already pushed off Jury duty twice, and the next date I need to show up is on the 22nd (erev YK). There is absolutely no way that I can make it there tomorrow or Tuesday. Should I just show up Thursday morning and explain that it was Yom Kippur?

A relative of mine got jury duty. They said since it was pushed off once it can't be pushed off again. Is that true? HUCA works by these things?
