To whom it may concern,
I am writing that my summons to Jury Duty on March 12, 2013, either
be deferred for at least a year or excused indefinitely.
I am currently in great financial hardship and I cannot afford to abandon
my plumbing business for two weeks, even if expenses are reimbursed.
I am the employee and have several jobs booked over this period. If I
have to cancel them, this may damage my reputation and prevent me
from getting further business, at a time when I am in debt and
struggling with mortgage payments.
I understand that Jury Duty is a civic obligation, and under normal
circumstances I would love to take part, but it is simply not feasible at
I appreciate your understanding and look forward to your advice.
