We had been on Vacation for several weeks and the notice was in a large stack of mail that I did not open until the day of his jury attendance at 4PM he was to report that morning at 8AM. He is 18 living at home and never, I repeat never looks through the mail. We received the current summons in the mail but as we have not been on vacation we found the current summons right away.
"Moreover, that his failure to appear was intentional" do you mean unintentional he would have went had he known?
