Medical Excuse from jury duty in Oregon?

Postby selkie » Tue Jun 24, 2014 10:11 pm

Hello All,

I moved to Oregon about a year ago. I've had MS for over 12 years & experience lots of symptoms, extreme nerve pain & muscle spasms, cognitive problems moderate & higher, perceptual problems, dizziness, foot drag, difficulty walking, coordination problems (run into walls, drop things), mind numbing fatigue, bladder control problems, & etc.

Where I lived before the courts granted me a permanent excuse from serving. And altough my doctor wrote me an excuse which I mailed in with my letter, the doctor's nurse told me, "I don't know if they'll excuse you." She also seemed to have her doubts that I should serve in spite of my disabilities. Was she just being thoughtless, or had she seen patients denied before? I don't know anyone here, so have no one to ask...

Anyone have experience with Oregon courts? Were you excused with a doctor's letter? Am feeling a major panic attack coming on should I have to serve. 8O

Thanks so much for your guidance!! selkie
