Legal Question

Asked on: 1/29/13, 10:43 am

My mother received jury summons and unfortunately failed to send disqualification request. Her jury duty was for 1/7/13. Now, she's not US citizen (she's residential alien) and her English skill is far from perfect. Also, she lives in Kings county for 7 years now (Courthouse is in Fresno county)... This is second or third time she received jury summons since she moved out of Fresno county. Since she responded to previous letters, courthouse should have her information by now, so I don't really understand why they keep sending her jury summons, knowing that she's not US citizen and lives outside of their county... Does she have to worry about some penalty? (letter states something of $1ooo fine) Should she contact courthouse to discuss the situation? I appreciate your help. Thank you.
