Both of my daughters have gotten letters for jury duty lately and they've long since moved away. You have to let them know that and you're off, but one daughter missed the original letter and now they've called her for a specific date and she lives two hours away. I hope she can still get out of it. She doesn't have a car and I'd have to pick her up at the train station and get her back to it (4 hours total driving time). I've only been called twice. Once they didn't need me when I called the night before, and once I was supposed to show, but someone (Gerald Ford?) died and all courts were closed for the day.
I've heard you can have post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) if you serve on a jury for a horrific crime because of all of the detailed evidence presented.
