    They can - why don't you want to do it.

    They can, and will. It's a legal obligation unless there are valid reasons which prevent you from doing it.

    The chances of that are slim, so just do it. It's alot of hassle if you start playing games with serious stuff like this.

    You can very rarely get out of it without a valid reason, at best you may be able to postpone it but thats about it.

    If you attend looking right wing in a proper suit and tie carrying the FT you will never get called actually onto a jury.

    I just stayed in bed... zero ****s were given. (▀̿ ̿Ĺ̯▀̿ ̿)̄

    I phoned late afternoon, she said they had enough people and the judge had decided not to do anything about the those who didn't turn up, I won't be summoned again for a year...

    I'd call that a win :danceboy:

    I've always wondered (i'm not of age to attend jury duty yet) but what would happen if you were sent a letter and it just didn't arrive? Things can go missing in the post so what if you just never got the letter so never turned up?
