I would just show up. But I would probably be real dramatic about it... I'm a ham like that
Haha, I was thinking that no lawyer in their right mind would expect me to think rationally and be unbiased. DH had jury duty a couple weeks ago and was considered for a child molestation case. I got all choked-up just hearing the few details he share with me. I couldn't imagine staying composed if I was hearing actual details of a case like that.
Another issue I'm having is that I was planning to start my maternity leave that week. Which means I would be using my accrued paid time off at that point. If I'm going to be serving jury duty, I want to record it as jury duty time and extend my leave at the end. My dr will have signed me out onto short term disability by then.
