Message updated on 1/24/2020:

Although we attempt to spread reporting obligations among all jurors, you may be called to serve on any day of the month regardless of your juror number. Therefore, you must check every day after 5pm.  It is your responsibility to keep checking to see if your juror number is called for the remainder of the month.

The following message is correct for:

 

JANUARY TRIAL JURORS

Monday, January 27, 2020

January Trial Jurors with reporting numbers #266 through #380 are to report to Room 101 at 8:30 am for orientation and jury service.

(That means starting with and including Juror #266, all the numbers in between and including #380 unless previously excused)

Please bring your SUMMONS and JUROR BADGE with you when reporting for service. 

  It is preferable that all electronics are left at home or in your vehicle.  Any electronics in the possession of a juror must be OFF on the second floor of the courthouse.

Although the courthouse does not open its doors until 8:30 a.m., jurors should allow time to find a parking place as spaces are limited.  However, please plan on being able to promptly enter the courthouse at your designated time through the front doors on High Street.

The temperature in the courthouse can fluctuate; please dress accordingly.  Please also be mindful of others who may be sensitive to strong perfumes or colognes.

 

GRAND JURY –  OCTOBER 2019 THROUGH FEBRUARY 2020

 

 NOTE:  GRAND JURY will receive a written letter two weeks prior to when you will need to report for the first time.
