Potential Jurors Bail On Cassia County

Not enough people are responding to jury summonses in Cassia County. That's left officials to consider different ways to expand their jury pools. Options include sending more a strongly worded summons and to use additional databases to collect potential juror lists. The Twin Falls Times-News reports the issue arose because the sheriff's office has had to deliver more summonses because people have failed to respond to the court's initial letter. Jury Commissioner Elizabeth Kenner says the court has been pulling 1,000 candidates every three months, and each time about 600 are disqualified/Associated Press. More here.

Question: When did you last serve on a jury?
