Best Answer

For someone un-skilled in legal procedure, they may refer to it as being interviewed, but they are not "interviewed" before being chosen, or rejected, for jury duty.

The potential jurors go through a process known as as voir dire before being selected for a jury. The potential jurors are asked questions by the attorneys representing both sides to be sure that they don't have any prejudices or knowledge and can be fair and impartial.

What happens if you don't report to jury duty?

Jury duty, in the United States, is considered to be a part of an individual's civic duty. The right to a trial by a jury of one's peers is guaranteed by the United States' Constitution. A jury is supposed to be representative of a particular region to ensure a fair trial for the person being accused of a crime. As a result of the importance of the jury in a trial, there are consequences for not reporting to jury duty. The consequences of not reporting to jury duty depend on the region in which the individual resides. In general, individuals who do not report to jury duty can be found in contempt of court, can be heavily fined, and can be subject to questioning as to why the individual did not report to jury duty.
