Thank you for the update, Los-Angeles. I am happy to hear that apparently there was no need for your service this week.I logged on, and before I could even click to see my Friday reporting instructions, it said "You have completed your jury service. Thank you for serving." WHEW!!!! I feel like I dodged a bullet! Time to go out and celebrate tomorrow!
I will never know if my logging in late at night each time played a role in not getting selected.
I suspect that COVID is extra motivation for lawyers to settle cases before trial. There must be a lot of hung juries because of too many jurors getting sick. Having jury duty during a time when COVID cases are still very high may have worked to my advantage.
I appreciate that you were ready and willing and able to go to court this week to sit on a jury. Too many people try to wrangle their way out of being on a jury by inventing some cockamamie excuse. It looks like, this week at least, all the jurors that were needed were seated.
Have a good weekend.
