Who can be excused from Jury Duty?
You are entitled to be excused as a juror if you:
- Are over 70 years of age
- Are a caretaker of a person who is an invalid
- Can show a physical or mental impairment
- Inability to comprehend or to communicate in English
If you have a serious problem with the date you are scheduled to report, you may call the juror hotline at 246-3600 and ask for a postponement. If the judge does grant you a postponement, you will be given a new date to report, usually within 4-8 weeks. Since jury duty is a constitutional responsibility, requests for postponements are not taken lightly.
