How to get out of jury duty as an AE?

Hi everyone,


I got the summons to appear for California jury duty during the last week of my quarter. While I’ve always wanted to be put on a really cool case, I don’t have the time.


What tips and tricks have you used to get out of jury duty?

It’s pretty tough to get out of jury duty and you can’t use work as an excuse. If you go in for the interview to be on the jury just lie and say you are a white supremacist or something

Only if they can prove you are lying…

Could also claim a mental health issue...doesn't have to be a diagnosis but saying "I'm very stressed out because of personal obligations and don't think I'm in the right head space to make such an important decision for someone else" could work.

I've never been called for jury duty but I've heard the easiest way to get out is to make a comment about how you don't trust police/the government/lawyers/the courts/one of the defendants traits.

Literally everyone I know has been excused after one day. If you get called for actual jury selection, just say your schedule can't accommodate it/don't raise your hand.

I have gotten out of it by claiming distrust of the legal system.
