-Could you explain your situation a little more?Did you ever receive a written notice for jury duty prior to receiving this phone call?
Have you recently moved or had trouble with your mail?
Dear JACUSTOMER - Most notices for jury duty require that you call in the night before to see if you should appear the next day. Obviously that didn't happen if they called you. My suggestion is to call them back and make certain you have the name of the person who told you to wait until you receive a call. I don't like to take chances when it comes to a possible contempt of court situation which this could be.
I just have no way to know from hear exactly what the situation may be but if someone in authority like the court bailiff tells you to wait until you hear something then that's just fine. If this was just someone in the clerk's office I would not rely on that statement. You would need to contact the judge's office and speak to the bailiff or some other person in that office. You certainly don't want a warrant issued for non appearance.
