The Dondero family of Glastonbury CT said their son, Nick, 10, received a jury duty summons in the mail. His dad says "I figure most kids are going to end up in court someday but this is a a little early."
Officials said the branch gets names for jury duty from the The Department of Motor Vehicles, the Department of Labor, Registrar of Voters, and the Department of Revenue Services. The received names do not include the bearers' ages.
A Pennsylvania family received a similar surprise in the mail in February 2018 when Luke Fox, 11, was issued a jury duty summons. Jeanette Fox, Luke's mother, said she called an 800 number on the summons and the woman she spoke to said the court system had recently switched companies in charge of compiling the list of people who receive summonses.
