Jury Duty

Oh joy and rapture, I've been summonsed to appear before the Superior Court for jury selection.

I have to give Arizona credit for trying to make the process agreeable. They give you much more notice than other states due (it's nearly two months to my appointment; I've heard from friends out-of-state who get a week's notice). And if you're "lucky" enough to be assigned to the Superior Court in downtown Phoenix, they've recently renovated with all sorts of neat stuff to hopefully speed up the trial, and they also offer WiFi for sale so you can do something productive (or completely unproductive) during breaks.

Of course, I didn't get summonsed to the Phoenix court; mine's for the Mesa court. Which isn't all bad, since it's a heck of a lot closer than downtown Phoenix. But it also probably means it'll be something less interesting, as the exciting cases all seem to go downtown.

Whatever potential cases I've received a summons for today is irrelevant anyway, as I've got to defer it until the summer due to scheduling conflicts. Which is another area Arizona cleans up: you can do your summons responses online, including choosing an exact deferred date you can serve for the selection process. Sweet.
