They'll generally work with you for things that are reasonable....like your wedding :) You'll just get cycled back in. Depending where you are, they may call upon you again in 6 months or so. But BE SURE to properly file your request not to serve! Don't just ignore it.

@19 you can send in a response on why you can't participate, and things like weddings and most other prior commitments they let you out of it for. It's actually really simple to get out of it.

It doesn't work like that. If Op can't get out of it (and it's easy) then he/she has to sit through he trial and all the witnesses to come to an agreement with the other people. It's a process.

Apparently you don't know how it works #23, because jury selection would take place on the day OP has to show up, or later.

Say your racist about every race equally and they will veto you out

what i learned in school was: racism is thinking one race is better than another, so wouldnt it be thinking all races are better than every other race? that makes no sense. im special

You keep saying that, but unless they have a huge pool of jurors to work through the selection process will be out of the way relatively early in the day. Unless the wedding is at high noon or summat, OP should be able to serve their civic duty while still ditching :)

46, I don't know how jury duty works where you are, but when I went in for jury duty, they don't know what case the jurors might sit for until the judge requests a jury pool, which wasn't till 11:30 for me. Even if you get pulled for a jury pool early, if you aren't selected for that jury, you still have to wait for them to dismiss you (somewhere between 2 and 5 pm depending on how busy the courthouse is that day).

Well, I am from a small town. I haven't been called for duty, but with the exception of one major case (rape trial, very unusual from around here), all of my friends and family who have been called have been either done or have known they're sitting by around noon. I should have realized my experience isn't typical.

It's easy to get it postponed. They summoned me last year, and I just filled out that the date was in the middle of an out of state vacation, and they pushed it back 2 months. Barring that, it's highly likely your group will be cancelled. Mine has been every time I've been summoned.

Hey just have your wedding there! Make a day of it! Everyone can sit around and eat wedding cake and putt people behind bars! Oh! can you dream up anything more Beautiful?!?! FYL

Tell them that "according to the prophecy" that you shouldn't have to come in. And if they still make you then "according to the prophecy" someone is already guilty. Or just tell them that if you have to come in then someone better be going to jail.
