It looks like the federal government wants me to show up for jury selection after all. After I mailed back the form I received with my federal jury summons late last year, I didn’t hear anything back and thought I wasn’t needed after all. I was wrong.
Saturday I received an official looking notice to appear for jury duty in the mail. Unless they change the date or the defendant reaches a plea deal, I have to report to the federal courthouse in Salt Lake next week to go through the jury selection process. Since I’ve never done it before, I’m actually looking forward to it even though I hear it’s a fairly boring and mundane process.
The one thing I’m not looking forward to about it is parking. In downtown Salt Lake City, that can be an absolute nightmare.
