Out of the 12 months, there are only three for which subs must claim financial hardship. We can serve when summoned during some of June, along with July and August, or if summoned in January through May, we can file for a six month extension into the summer. It is only during September, October, and November, that we must file for financial hardship, and as luck would have it, I was summoned for mid October. I wrote that I cannot afford to lose an average of $125/day for each day served because I was already on a low income and only get paid the days I work. I added that I would happy to serve during the summer. Today I got a new summons denying me financial hardship. However, at least my new date is December 20, the beginning of winter break. I would like to know if anyone knows the probability of getting on a case that lasts more than two weeks? Should I be concerned, or is it a long shot this will happen?
