IMPORTANT JURY SERVICE INFORMATION FOR THOSE ON STANDBY during your service week:


Your availability for the jury selection process will be expected through Friday of the week you were summoned, with the exception of court holidays. If necessary, all prospective jurors are expected to be available on a one-hour notice to report for jury service. If you report and are assigned to a courtroom, your services are required until you are excused from the jury selection process. If you are selected as a sworn juror or as an alternate juror, you must serve for the duration of the trial.


You are expected to return to work any day that you are not required to report to the courthouse. You will receive a certificate of appearance for the days you are instructed to report. This does not include days you were on standby.
