CONNECTICUT - JURY DUTY

Article

State laws and regulations that affect your medical practice

1. Are physicians exempt from jury duty in Connecticut?

Connecticut no longer specifically exempts physicians from jury duty. Generally, a person shall be disqualified to serve as a juror if such person:

(a) Is found by a judge of the Superior Court to exhibit any quality which will impair the capacity of such person to serve as a juror, except that no person shall be disqualified on the basis of deafness or hearing impairment;

( c ) Is not able to speak and understand the English language;

(d) Is the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of the State, Treasurer, Comptroller or Attorney General;

(e) Is a judge of the Probate Court, Superior Court, Appellate Court or Supreme Court, is a family support magistrate or is a federal court judge;

(f) Is seventy years of age or older and chooses not to perform juror service; and

(g) Is incapable, by reason of physical or mental disability, of rendering satisfactory juror service.

C.G.S.A. § 51-217

2. May a physician be excused, at his or her request, if jury service will pose extreme hardship?

The court has authority to excuse a juror from juror service, upon a finding of extreme hardship. This means a situation or condition that prevents a person from serving as a juror for even one day.

C.G.S.A. § 51-217a
