This is an excellent group and website.....Word of warning-NEVER mention this if you're called for jury duty-you're gone..

When I was picked for jury duty a year or so ago, there were people on the court house steps handing out brochures about this information and website to everyone who went to the orientation meeting.
Juries are far more powerful than most people think. Never try to get out of it, use it instead to improve our legal system if the opportunity comes up.

However, if you absolutely HAVE to get out of it, just tell them you can't read. They'll show you the door immediately.

I agree, we could change things if we educate people to the fact they don't have to just go along with the endless stupidity the courts force on regular citizens.

Good link ODS

BTDT Thanks.

I read through their booklet every time my name comes up for jury duty, which seems to be about every other year. ;D
