California

Dee S., San Fernando Valley, CA
Dee, home-schooling mom of a 6-year-old was called for jury duty by the Pasadena Courthouse in Los Angeles County, California in early 2005.  She told a jury representative about her situation.  The jury representative excused Dee, but a short time later, she received a notice in the mail saying that she failed to show.  When she called to find out what happened, she was told her excuse was denied.

Dee then called the Jury Division, Summons Information Department for the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, for help with her situation. 

The Superior Court jury representative rudely asked Dee why her husband couldn’t take care of her child.  She then demanded that Dee tell her when she would be able to serve.  Dee replied that she didn’t know since she was home-schooling her child.  The clerk became irate insisting that Dee had to serve!  Dee said to the clerk, “It sounds like you are telling me that my responsibility to the court is more important than my child and that my serving on a jury should take precedence over taking care of my child?

If you have been mistreated by the Courts in this way, or if you know of others that have, please click on the letter to e-mail me and share your story!
