Jury Duty (almost)

Thursday, 17 October

I received a letter, dated 16 October, saying that I have jury duty in 5 days (Tuesday). Rather than being held at the closer Perth District Court, it is to be held out at Fremantle 🙁 The Weird thing is that it says that I should notify them at least 5 days before hand if I should be excluded.

I spent the weekend wondering about what it will be like, and wondering why it was scheduled at such short notice.

Monday, 21 October

I received an overnight envelope saying that the Court case out at Fremantle has been rescheduled to be held in the Perth Court, so I am no longer required. This letter was dated 17 October.

I am a bit pissed off about this. I don’t mind getting called for jury duty, but I would expect slightly more notice. If it was going to be cancelled, I would also prefer to hear about it earlier than the night before hand.
