Jury Service


Thank you for visiting the Court’s Jury Service webpage. If you have been summoned as a prospective juror and serve on a trial, you will be fulfilling an important obligation of US citizenship that dates back to the founding of our democracy.

After serving on a jury, most jurors report that they enjoyed the experience and learned a great deal about how our judicial system works. They also report having a greater appreciation for the important role they played in deliberating with their fellow jurors to achieve a just result. Many report that their confidence in our judicial system is enhanced by participating in jury service.
