Jury Duty

Why are Changes Needed?

In Michigan, lactating individuals have the option under law to claim exemption from jury service due to breastfeeding. However, this excludes valuable members of society from performing their civic duty and does not create fair representation within the jury box. Courthouse accommodations are clearly lacking. Currently, it is unfeasible for a lactating individual to serve on a jury due to lack of time, space, and accommodations for breastfeeding and/or expressing milk. Courts need to be more accessible for breastfeeding individuals and provide accommodations for those who seek to fulfill their civic duty through the juror process.
