it's not me. It's county court. We suddenly had an inspiration that they don't know where my imaginary friend went to college (which I'm absolutely positive is not two doors down from the courthouse), so maybe just say away at college, finals week and it might be enough for a deferment. No choice of time. Report 1pm Monday, trial begins Tuesday, call after 5pm Friday before to see if you got lucky and aren't needed....but is a deferment the best option because you'll definitely get called again pretty soon ...or just hope not to get picked so it doesn't loom again in the near future.... decision decisions

I looked at the W. county court's postponement policy. The chances appear to be slim to none. OTOH, nothing ventured - nothing gained. If they consider it, they will likely require supporting documentation be faxed to them before approval. It might be worth going through the process to have the outcome for future reference.

In any case, if the assigned juror number isn't selected for service, be sure to play that number in the lotto!

Those can get nasty. I served on an auto accident case (low speed rear ending) where the plaintiff's lawyer asked for $90,000 for injury, pain and suffering. We awarded the plaintiff $I,000 (mainly to deter the defendant, who otherwise went above and beyond after the accident, from following too closely in the future. The trial lasted only one day.

pologirl was granted a deferment, but had to pick a new date on the spot. Which turned out maybe to also be problematic but we shall see.

Save the deferment request in case Trump brings back the military draft when we go to war with N Korea.
