SGA Assembly Passes Resolution Supporting Jury Duty Deferment for Indiana Resident Students

During their weekly meeting on Wednesday, March 4, the Student Government Association Assembly unanimously passed a resolution urging the rules of the Indiana Supreme Court to be amended to include a deferment option that would allow an Indiana resident full-time university student summoned for jury duty to defer their service until the close of the current academic year.

The Indiana Jury Rules, as maintained by the Indiana State Supreme Court, do not currently contain a provision providing full-time university students a flexible jury duty deferment option.

The full text of the resolution can be found here: SGA Jury Duty Resolution
