Back in February I received a jury summons for the court in Stockton, which is the county seat of San Joaquin County.
The date for the summons was while I was to be in Australia, so I asked for a postponement of my service. The new date given to me was for April 6 when I was to be back home.
Of course a lot has happened since that initial jury summons.
I had been looking forward to jury duty as I would get to go into the new court house in Stockton. The new courthouse in on the right and the old courthouse is to the left. I had heard that the jury room was on one of the upper floors of the building and had great views of the city. The jury room in the old courthouse was in the basement.
Of course, my trip to Australia was postponed and even though I was here the jury service for two weeks ago was cancelled. Over the past couple weeks I have been watching to see if jury service for next week was cancelled and finally today the news came that it was.I had also been looking forward to taking pictures of the new courthouse, but since I will not be going to Stockton I decided to take a virtual walk with Google Maps and snag some pictures out of the street views.
You can see that the new court house is an impressive looking building.
Perhaps next year I will get another summons. I get service credit for jury duty for next week which means that I cannot be called again until 2021.
Instead next week I will be again working from home as I shelter in place. I already have several meetings scheduled for Monday as we use this time to get caught up on documentation and presentations. It is also busy as there is a lot of administrative work for on-line learning which is all of a sudden getting utilized more.
Keep safe out there,
