Someone with this person's conditions would never be able to serve on a jury. The summons that this person received requires the completion of a questionnaire. He would be able to disclose his various medical conditions on the form, return it by mail and he should be able to get excused.

He could also call the Kitsap County clerk of the court and explain the situation. You can read about postponing or excusing jury service here:

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
