Of course this would happen with my luck...  
...I got a summons in the mail today for jury duty...

DURING MY NYC TRIP! :( :( :[ :[

Thankfully, it's the last day of my trip and not mashed in between, but still... Does anyone know if they'll make me change my travel plans or might they excuse me and throw me back into the pool or possibly re-schedule me? (Hopes and prays...) :P

I'm calling them tomorrow... UGH!!

They'll probably reschedule you. Good luck! I got summoned too!

There's usually an option to postpone, although if you've postponed two times in the past without actually going through the process, they won't let you.

I certainly hope they'll let me postpone! I didn't know that was an option (hopefully it is here...) Thanks for the information! *Crosses fingers*

I think they should be able to reschedule it for you. Good luck! :D

Read the form. You should be able to reschedule. If it is like LA County, you get one opportunity to reschedule, so make sure you have a period in mind to request.

like everyone else has said, you should be able to reschedule, especially because you have proof that you'll be elsewhere with travel plans. they always have a huge pool of people, because they expect people to cancel because they've moved, are students, etc. I think you'll be fine. :)

eewww no fun! I go it too! It was the week before school started this year and I wasn't allowed into my classroom to move in until the day I was called to duty. So I sent in my request and now I'm scheduled for Dec. 29th!

It shouldn't be a problem. The "penalty" in Ventura -- when you're summoned, you are placed On Call for the entire week. (You call the night before to find out if you have to come in.) If you reschedule, you're given a date and it's not "on call" -- you have to show up and God forbid something happens and you need to reschedule again!
