    Wink Not the smartest way to try to be excused from jury duty

    New Wrinkle On Avoiding Jury Duty - April 30, 2009

    New Wrinkle On Avoiding Jury Duty

    In no uncertain terms, a Montana man tells judge why he won't serve
    APRIL 30--There are probably better ways to avoid jury duty than the approach recently taken by a Montana man. After Erik Slye, 36, received a jury notice earlier this year, he filed a notarized affidavit seeking to be excused from serving on a District Court panel in Gallatin County. Slye's caustic affidavit, which he prepared with help from his wife Jennifer, can be found below. The document, of course, did not sit well with court officials and led a judge to threaten to jail Slye. But after being summoned to court, Slye apologized for the affidavit and avoided being cited on a criminal failure to appear rap. And he also was excused from serving on a jury. (1 page)

    Well, at least he didn't beat around anybody's bush about it.

    Well. I believe that is clear enough.

    Heh. Awesome rant, though it's probably the sort of thing one should write for catharsis and then burn, and come up with a less offensive to judges excuse.

    That reminds me of the 30Rock episode where Liz turned up in Jury Duty in a full Princess Leiah costume...and was made to do it anyway.

    Aw crap, now I've just been reminded of Kevin Smith's jury duty story. I caught it at the end of his Threevening special and was so torn between running away screaming, and seeing how the story ends.

    I had a good laugh, Moongirl, thanks!
    I saw a film today, oh boy.

    Never heard of it. Can you repeat it?
