Jury Duty

Filed under: General — Erwin @ 5:54 pm

A week or two ago I was surprised by a letter from the local judicial district. Eh? Yeah, I’d been summoned for jury duty. Cool or not cool, that was definitely a first for me. 🙂

However, I was pretty sure that I would be excused because, last I checked, I’m not a citizen. So we filled out their questionnaire (which includes a question about citizenship), sent it off, and waited.

This week we got a reply from the court that, as expected, I had been excused from jury duty, so it’s all cool, but, now I’m wondering: Where the hell did they get my name anyway? Is it because I pay (state/federal) taxes? Is it because I have a driver’s license? How does that work?
