Well, this may get interesting...

I finally got around to properly reading the Jury Summons that I received late last week. I had been treating it fairly casually, having been around this a few times before: call the night before and maybe get off the hook, otherwise report to Lowell in the morning, wait around, get some coffee, probably get sent home. The one time I actually got empanelled, the case was quick and fairly interesting.

Now I realize that this one's federal. It's a *three* week window in which I could be called up instead of one, and the trials tend to last a week or two. And instead of Lowell (which is finally fairly convenient to me for the first time), it's downtown at -- well, earlier than I am usually wont to be anywhere.

*Sigh*. I don't really have any reason to ask for a deferral, and it's possible that I could get another interesting case. (And I do think it's an important responsibility, so I'm disinclined to try to weasel out of it.) But this is going to make scheduling our deadlines a real pain, since my schedule is going to be so unpredictable...
