I would serve…

Posted on: December 3, 2007

Just got summoned for jury duty, which would be awfully inconvenient right now.  Turns out there’s a special exception for breast feeding mothers though (Rule of Court 859, according to the form).  I would do it — I’ve been called twice (served once during college in a stupid case that got thrown out before we got to make a decision and sat around at the court house here without being called in) and definitely believe in serving on juries.

I didn’t realize that knitting needles were banned — seems like you could get a whole lot of knitting done waiting around to be called in.

Yeah, stupid Santa Clara county. I’ve heard of people elsewhere who’ve asked if they could take knitting while serving on jury duty, and were told “of course!”, as if it were silly of the person to even ask.
