For the jury system to work, it is essential that courts and employers work in partnership to ensure that all employees are available to serve jury duty when summoned. Without cooperation from the business community, we risk losing a fundamental principle upon which we, private and corporate citizens alike, depend. Cooperation from employers is vital in maintaining a strong jury system; and your participation is necessary.
We realize that even the temporary absence of an employee can create a hardship for any business. Juries are the bedrock of our legal system. That legal system, and the rule of law which it preserves, is critical to the success of our economic institutions and the preservation of our individual rights. It is this reason, that we ask for your sacrifice and cooperation.
Please accept our sincere appreciation for allowing your employee to serve as a juror in the District of Idaho.
