OHIO - JURY DUTY

Article

Ohio state laws and regulations that affect your medical practice

Ohio law does not provide an automatic exemption from jury duty for physicians. However, Ohio law allows an individual to be excused if “the interests of the public will be materially injured by the juror’s attendance” or if “undue hardship” will be imposed upon the juror.  “Undue hardship” includes a situation where “the prospective juror would be required to abandon a person under the prospective juror’s personal care or supervision due to the impossibility of obtaining an appropriate substitute caregiver during the period of participation in the jury pool or on the jury.”

A physician could argue that his/her patient is an individual needing personal care, and there is no sufficient substitute.
