SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. --
A Seminole County woman says she had to spend six months on a jury, but she said the hospital she worked for refused to wait and fired her.
Susie Brown is now suing Central Florida Regional Hospital. She was picked a juror in an insurance fraud case. It was supposed to last four months, but Brown said when she told her employer it was extended to six months, the hospital terminated her employment.
"I never dreamed they would let me go," said Brown. "I was on jury duty."...

She said her boss wasn't happy she was picked as a juror on a trial expected to last four months. "He said I should have come to him sooner and he would have written a letter to get me out, " said Brown.
When I served, we were told that was no longer allowed.
