So...US District Court would not excuse me on my terms. I got strung along until just a few minutes ago when I called to get my reporting instructions for 9 AM tomorrow.
I've been REJECTED...my service is not required. On one hand, I'm very very happy. On the other hand, how DARE they reject me! Me...Queen of the Land of Belle. Was it because my son is almost a lawyer? Is it because my husband works for a public utility? Was it because I'm an educator? Was it because I said I could not be objective if selected for a case where a crime was allegedly committed with a firearm purchased illegally? (Yep...that's probably it...) They asked and I wasn't gonna lie...
I called Legare up in Chapel Hill to tell him I'd been rejected. He was driving through campus on his way to a Farm Law seminar. All of a sudden he said, "I can't find a parking place. Why can't I find a parking place? Oh shoot...I almost ran over Roy Williams." Roy was apparently jogging off some stress. I imagine he's still a little bummed about the Heels not playing ball last night.
Thankfully, Roy will live to see another day. I, on the other hand, am still REJECTED!
