No I was not given a written dismissal. The jury coordinator assured me that she would do everything she could to make sure I was cleared. This was at the end of the day and I had told the sheriff that I was traveling the next day, he went into the courtroom and came back out asking what time my flight was, I told him 8 AM, he went back into the courtroom and came back out and told me to go to the jury assembly room and show the jury coordinators my e ticket and they would provide an accomodation for me. The jury coordinators were tenative about letting me go because they hadn't heard directly from the judge. They asked to see my e ticket, which I showed them, they wrote down that they had seen it and my name and juror #.. No I didn't get any last names. I trusted them and I guess I shouldn't have.
Yes - May 31
