Topic - Jury Duty

Jury duty is service as a juror in a legal proceeding. When a person is called for jury duty in the United States, that service is usually not optional: one must attend or face strict penalties. Employers are not allowed to fire an employee simply for being called to jury duty. When attended, potential jurors may be asked to serve as a juror in a trial, or they may be dismissed. See jury selection and Taylor v. Louisiana. Jury duty has been criticized as involuntary servitude that is akin to conscription. - Source: Wikipedia
