Jury Duty Telephone Standby
« on: April 30, 2010, 10:33:46 AM »
Starting today I'm on telephone standby for jury duty. However, it's not clear from the notice I got in the mail exactly how long I have to call in. Has anyone done this before?

If I remember correctly it was for up to a week or so.  You will either be excused or have to go in.  I think I had to go in the 2nd day of being on standby.

I've done this before too. You keep calling til either your number gets called (bummer) or it tells you to stop calling in (hooray!) I don't know how long it'll last because my number as always been called by at least the 2nd or 3rd day.

I had to do this about a month ago.  You call after 5 each night until they tell you to stop; for me it was five days. I think that's the maximum.  The numbers they were calling never got near mine.

Go to the web site to check.  It's easier than calling in.

Do you happen to know the web address? Can't seem to find it.
