Let me tell you how average - middle class - normal I must be. I've just received notice for jury duty ......
16th time in 25 years. Yes, 16 times. I mean, how average can one person be?
Now I don't know how the rest of the country works, but in South Carolina you can be released from serving if you have served less than 3 years prior. You can serve more often if you would like. But that rule only applies to a single court. You can be called to as many different courts as there are courts for.
So far, I have been called to just about every one including Federal District court. I even served on a jury for a Federal trial. Now I haven't served on every one . . . .just called. Some of them I was dismissed from for one reason or another. Still . . . . my name keeps coming up. Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket!
