Should nursing mothers be excused from jury duty? A woman in Missouri is facing charges for bringing baby to jury duty. She tried to get out of it first, because she’s still breast feeding junior, but the courts told her she needed to make “care arrangements”. So when she showed up with baby in tow, and no one to help take care of him, she got slapped with Contempt of Court, for not following orders.
So what do you think? Was the ruling fair, or should new moms automatically be exempt from jury duty?
