Dear PoPville,

I just got my summons for a 5 week grand jury stint later this summer. You published a letter last year from former jurors about the policy forbidding any electronics, and I was curious whether or not there were any updates on that front. I want to make sure my employer knows how much (if at all) I’ll be able to work during normal work hours.

The Superior Court of the District of Columbia responded to that letter and they have not received word on:

“any official policy prohibiting the possession of electronic devices…”

You can read the full letter here. Anyone do grand jury duty recently? Were you able to use electronics?
