Serving on Jury Duty for the US District Court for the District of Columbia

Dear PoPville,

I’ve been summoned for two weeks of Petit Jury Service for the US District Court for the District of Columbia. This is different than the one day jury duty at the DC Court.

What was your experience serving on jury duty for the District Court in DC? I have to call each night (or check the web) after 5pm to find out if I have to go the next day. I’m wondering how likely it is that I’ll have to go on any given day, and how long I have to stay each day (reporting time is 8AM, which is going to create some childcare hassles in my household). I’d also just love to hear what anyone else’s experience was like, so I know a little more what to expect.

We’ve spoken a bit about different types of jury duty here, here and here.
