Re: Request John Smith, Juror No. 712343 to be excused from jury duty

We are writing this letter on behalf of John Smith, our employee, Senior credit analyst, who has been summoned to paper before your court to serve as a jury on 10/01/2030 at 8:00 am.

The purpose of this letter is to humbly request your honorable court to excuse John Smith from jury duty due to the following reasons

  • He is dealing with a very complex and profitable overdraft facility deal that no one can do it properly because he is the only expert in our institution and if this deal will not well be conducted it will have a very negative impact both financially and on our institution reputation.
  • Our leave policy does not include compensation for jury duty leave, this will. John Smith has clearly declared to us that the loss of wages will cause him and his family financial hardship.

on his behalf, we respectfully urge that he be excused from jury duty. We appreciate your consideration of our unusual circumstances. We’ll be waiting for your response to our request.

Re: Request Hellen Michael, Juror No. 712300 to be excused from jury duty

We are Hellen Michael’s employer, and she has received a summons from your Honorable court dated 01/01/2030, ordering her to appear for jury service on 11/01/2030 at 8:00 a.m.

Due to the corona pandemic, her presence is essential throughout the weekdays in our Hospital so that she can attend to all emergencies and take care of a big number of patients. Our hospital only has a few doctors, so if she goes to jury duty, we won’t be able to handle the enormous number of corona patients.

We’ve talked about it extensively with her. We recognize the value and necessity of jury duty. However, she has informed us that he would like to be excused from jury duty due to the pandemic circumstances.

We kindly ask that he be exempted from jury duty on her behalf. We appreciate your consideration of our unusual circumstances. We’ll be waiting for your response to our request.

Please contact me at 198-111-1111 if you have any questions or if we need to supply any additional information.

Sincerely

Dr. John Cashmere
