Dear Sir or Madame,

I received a summons to Jury Duty for (date). I am requesting an exemption from Jury Duty because I am breastfeeding my infant. Per Illinois Public Act 094-0391 Section 10.3: Any mother nursing her child shall, upon request, be excused from jury service.

I would be happy to serve on a jury in the future but am unable to do so at this time. I appreciate your understanding of my situation, and await your response to my request. Please contact me at (773) xxx-xxxx if you have any further questions or if I need to provide further material.

Thank you,

Member Masha got a letter back asking for dates that she would be available later and she wisely wrote this letter. Thanks for sharing, Masha!

Dear Sir or Madame,

I received a summons to Jury Duty for (date). As I was breastfeeding my child, I requested an exemption from Jury Duty because I was breastfeeding my infant. Per Illinois Public Act 094-0391 Section 10.3: Any mother nursing her child shall, upon request, be excused from jury service.

Following, I received an email request to supply a date in the future when I will be able to serve as a juror. As I am continuing to breastfeed, I cannot identify a date when I will be finished doing so. In addition, the Illinois Public Act 094-0391 Section 10.3 does not pinpoint an end date to the nursing mother excuse for jury service.

I would be happy to serve on a jury in the future but am unable to do so at this time. I appreciate your understanding of my situation, and await your response to my request. Please contact me at (773) xxx-xxxx if you have any further questions or if I need to provide further material.

Thank you,
