Ed. Note: We spoke about Federal Grand Jury experiences here.
I was wondering if anyone has any recent experiences with the five week DC Superior Court grand jury service. Read More

Any recent experiences being summoned to federal grand jury? Received my summons this week for the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. Not talking about petit jury service (one trial) or grand jury service at the DC courts (27 days of service). This is a 6-12 month commitment of 1-2 days a week, with a potential extension of up to 6 months. Read More

I served on a jury for 6 weeks in 2020 and just got a summons to report again for duty. I understand in DC it’s every 2 years, but shouldn’t it be longer for people who actually sat through a trial?“
I got an eSummons from “[email protected]” last night at approx. 8PM. It went to my spam folder, which I routinely check, so this post is mostly to raise awareness for others. Apparently a mailed summons will also follow. I don’t doubt it’s legit, but I have never gotten an summons via email before Read More
Thanks to Ben for sending: “Emergency Rally at Supreme Court at 5 PM Today (Friday Aug 27th)”
From the SCOTUSblog:
“The Supreme Court lifts the federal eviction moratorium. In an unsigned 8-page opinion (with the three liberals dissenting), SCOTUS sides with a group of landlords who argued that the CDC lacked the authority to bar evictions during the pandemic.”

From the office of Attorney General Karl Racine:
“Attorney General Karl A. Racine today issued the following statement after the DC Council passed emergency legislation — introduced by Chairman Mendelson earlier this week, and written in collaboration with the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) — that will protect DC consumers from abusive and unfair debt collection practices after the District’s temporary COVID-19 protections end and debt collection activity resumes.

I was summoned to Grand Jury back in December which was to begin in February. I deferred it to May since it’s for a month. Then yesterday I was summoned for Petit Jury in February for 2 weeks. I mean come on, what are the odds of both Grand and Petit Jury in one year let alone within a month between summons?
Luckily if I’m picked for Petit Jury, I can be excused for Grand Jury! But had to share this crazy situation!”
Ed. Note: You can see the poll results for the last time you were called for jury duty here.

I got called for Jury Duty, again. Now I get called every two years after seemingly rarely getting called. I even got called to a grand jury this year though fortunately, since I work for myself it would be rough to do, I didn’t have to serve on the actual jury. Anyway, now that I’ve figured out how to insert polls into posts again – I’d like to revisit the Jury Duty question. When’s the last time you were called to jury duty? Did you serve on a jury? How long did your jury duty last? Did you convict or acquit?
