14. Tell her not to freak. She should bring her summons
and show up that day--at least 20 mins early.
She can bring a book and an UNOPENED bottle of water. She should NOT expect to be able to bring her cell phone with her, so she can leave it in her glove compartment until lunch. She should bring a snack the first day, that she can leave in her car, unless the court website tells her there is a cafeteria or nearby place.
Every federal court has different rules. They are usually available online, as is PARKING...and directions.
She should not freak out. Grand juries vary--but because they are expensive, they tend to be as efficient as possible. Can you tell me where? State/city? She may not be sat, or she may sit for days, weeks, or months. She will not sit every day.
She should dress comfortably and neatly. No jeans. The court personnel appreciate respect of the courtroom, and all she need do is show up that day with her summons. They will tell her where to go.
She should answer all questions honestly and if she has a question, she can certainly ask it.
She is doing a great civic duty.
