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.

Jury Duty - Mini TR :)

 - Bring lunch and snacks with you, nothing really kosher in the area, and the only kosher snack in the vending machine was popcorners.

So as a reminder, besides for what they tell you to bring, like the summons and a pen. Make sure to bring a lunch or two, snacks, drink - no glass, good reading material or entertainment with headphones. Good luck.

FYI- There is was a kosher fleishig restaurant called "SHUK" located a few blocks away from the courthouses located on 129 Livingston St Brooklyn, NY 11201.

Yup, and if they send you one before then, you just send them back a copy of the paper that you have, that says you do not have to go for the next 8 years.
Right. Because I probably have it somewhere from 6 years ago after getting married and moving 3 times and the meantime :P

Thought there was something, but couldn't place where it was, and didn't have any battery to do a search. Though they do offer free wifi in the waiting room.

They somehow botched my last name up big time. So until they fix it I never have to go. :)

Remember to charge your phone in 8 years.  :) Although by then you'll be able to stick it in your ear to charge it.

well actually it seems like they closed a few months ago. I just checked online. I was there this past winter. Was around for about 2 years or so. There used to be a schnitzel stand in the area that came and went as well. When I was at SHUK it was jammed with heimishe attorneys etc. pretty good food too. oh well. The area can definitely use a lunch spot.

That's very little time. With such a large population why do they need you back so soon ?

Maybe they have a larger number of lawsuits?

Or a larger number of ineligible people, like illegal immigrants.
