I have never heard of
anyone being called TWICE for federal district court jury duty, in less than three years!
Actually, I'd never even heard of FDCJ duty until I got a summons about 2.5 years back. You're on call for a month, it does pay better (slightly) than county court. And if you get on a case, naturally, you could be going for months. As you might imagine, the cases are more high-profile ones (the Fort Dix Six was tried in the district court in my area).
I love jury duty, and really didn't mind last time, when I lived about 10 minutes from the federal courthouse. But now? I'm an hour and a half away. It's going to be a huge inconvenience if I have to trek into a courthouse deep in the bowels of the most dangerous city in the country for a month or more. I only got the 'fishing' questionaire, but presume that a summons will be following in a few months.
Anyone else gotten called for FEDERAL jury? Twice?
