I just got a jury summons in the mail and wrote a letter telling them I have a newborn, my husband works third shift, sleeps during the day (it's our only income) and I have no one to watch my baby. Do you think they will dismiss me or not? It says right on the web page that I'm expected to find childcare as they don't have it available for me. I don't know what I'm going to do if they tell me I have to go!

I was in a jury screening pool where a woman brought her daughter with Down Syndrome-the Judge went nucking futs, admonishing her to leave or be held in contempt. The message was clear... do not attempt to send a message or school the court.
Look on the back of the summons for instructions on deferral-

I've been excused, more than once. Showed up to court on the day I was supposed to be there, and they asked if anyone had problems comitting to jury duty. When I explained, they let me go. It was pretty simple.
