Any advice on how to get out of jury duty? I was summoned to serve and I'm terrified, in other circumstances I would love to go and serve but I'm just stressed out. I sent a letter explaining my situation but they didn't care; then they sent me some papers for my doctor to fill out so I would be excempt from it. The doctors I've been to swear that they can't smell anything on me and won't do anything to me, much less will they fill out paperwork for me. I have to report Friday Dec. 11th, but as far as I'm concerned I will not be there, I can't just show up like that. Will I get fined? Does anybody have any advice?
