I was all resigned to going to jury duty as I got a summons about a month ago, but the day I was to serve, I got really sick and so I just re-scheduled it. Then a week later, I got another jury summons for yet another court.
This is ridiculous. Out of the millions of people who live here, suddenly I have two summons?
One, I'm willing to go to, but now that I have two, this is over the top. Even the web address the summons gave to re-schedule doesn't even work (it is a legit summons though).
So has anyone ever dodged service and did anything happen like a fine/warrents/etc?

I have never been on jury duty. I was sent a notice about 5 months after I graduated back in 1986. I was enrolled full time at Wayne State University at the time and just sent a letter to that effect. They excused me. That is the only Jury Duty notice I have ever received.0

I ignored the letter I got once. Nothing happened. But I know it's our civic duty and if I ever get asked again, I'd def like to go. It could be an interesting crime and experience.0
