There are two main reasons for exemption:
If you feel that you have a valid reason for exemption, contact the Court of Appeal about this as soon as you have received the summons to appear in court. They will consider the issue.
The proceedings may close at the end of the first day, but the judgement itself is delivered on the second day.
If someone becomes ill in the middle of the court proceedings, a medical certificate is required from the first day. The proceedings must be postponed, since there will then not be a sufficient number of judges present. It is not possible to bring in an alternate member at the end of the court proceedings unless the alternate member has participated from the beginning.
As soon as you have received the summons, you must notify the Court of Appeal about this.
In principle, the journey must be made at the least possible cost to the State. If you wish to have a mileage allowance approved in such cases (and not just have the cost of the bus or train ticket refunded), you must obtain permission from the Court of Appeal in advance.
In principle you will be fined by the court, and at the same time you will be registered in the register of fines (bøteregisteret). If you are summoned as a lay judge, it is a civic duty to attend.
Witnesses summoned in criminal cases may be arrested by the police and made to appear before for the court.
It is the individual’s municipality/municipal council that selects a certain number of people as lay judges, and you must contact your local municipality and apply for exemption from the position. The Court of Appeal draws lay judges by lot from the panel compiled by the municipalities for a four-year period.
As soon as you have received the summons, you must notify the Court of Appeal about this. The court will consider the issue.
