September 19 Day 925: Hard to Believe

Dear Pierce County Superior Court,

Do you realize that I just finished by previous jury duty service LAST WEEK? It doesn’t seem fair to ask me to serve again almost immediately.

In King County, I would be eligible for an excusal since I served “within the last 12 months.” At least that is what their website says. I’m hoping Pierce County has a similar ruling but I could not easily find it online this evening.

I tried to request an excusal by visiting the web response form. It kept giving me an error.

Please consider updating your processes, database, and website. I, like many citizens, am quite busy with my job, family, service to my profession, and life. I feel like I already did my duty—at least for the time being.


A reasonable civic-minded citizen.
