Initiatives v Oligarchy

Our Founders' Warning: “Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories.” (Thomas Jefferson)

3.3: Excessive Hardship

Excessive hardship, proven before an expedited hearing in a United States Federal Court nearest the citizen’s residence, may excuse an IQA Member from duty. Failure to fulfill the duty shall be contempt of that court. The Courts shall consider excuse guidelines prepared by the IQA.

Explanation of Excessive Hardship

Excessive hardship excuse should only be given in genuine cases. The current ease of avoiding jury duty cannot carry over to IQA Members.
