Default Jury duty 11 days after naturalization.

Can anyone beat this?

Sadly I didn't actually have to go to court, just check the night before, and again at 11:15am on the day of. I was actually hoping to go in an see how it works, ideally a 1-2 day case...

That constitution and bill of rights pamphlet USCIS sent me was useful after all! Read it commuting to work.

p.s. look, I spelt "naturalization" correctly...

Have you been excused entirely or do you have to continue to call?

I was born with USC, but I got my first notice 11-12 days after my 18th birthday, I was still in high school (April birthday and school ends in June) so had a valid excuse not to and got excused without ever going into court, got a few more in the early 00's and at the time there was a financial hardship excuse to get out of it, and being I made 6/hr and my employer didn't pay for jury duty got out of those as well. (would have gone if I could afford to miss work) I get about one a year now, but been in Canada since 2004, so again a valid excuse not to attend.

Both my husband and myself were summoned for jury duty shortly after becoming USCs.
