Juror Instructions

2018 / 2019 Juror Questionnaire (September 01, 2018 - August 31, 2019)

  

1. Read the summons: The address, date, and time of your appearance is written on the summons you received in the mail. If you need to be  excused from jury duty, you need to contact the scheduling clerk listed on your jury summons; be prepared to put your reasons in writing to be sent to the presiding judge. 

2. Inform your employer: Your employer must allow you time off for jury duty. Employers cannot discharge an employee called for jury service as long as the employee gives reasonable notice of the summons.

3. Your day in Court: Plan to attend as a juror from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The time you are released will depend on the Court's schedule. Please dress appropriately: shorts, tank tops, or bare feet are not permissible.
