Yesterday I received a summons for possible federal jury service during the month of June in Billings. The letter indicated they would not tell me that I was to to appear for jury duty, but that is was my responsibility to call a phone number every friday after 5 pm to find out if I am needed for jury duty. Is the federal government getting so lazy they cannot inform people of jury duty and shifts the responsibility onto the individual citizen? I cannot remember what day it is or if I have taken my pills (this morning I forgot to brush my teeth). I imagine there are others in the same boat. I think it is the responsibility of the judicial system to inform those who need to appear for jury duty. Whose brilliant idea was this?
