Jury duty can commence early in the day in our court, and it is important that you report on time. Bring a magazine, book or other item for occasional delays. The selection process averages about three hours. If you are not selected for jury duty, you will be permitted to leave after the selection process.
If you are selected, you may be required to remain at the courthouse for the full day.
Please be prepared to do so by making tentative arrangements for car pooling, babysitting, business appointments, child care, and other personal business in advance. You will receive a notice to report with the date and time you are to be at the U.S. Courthouse. You should read the notice and carefully follow the instructions it provides.
** PURSUANT TO AN ORDER OF THE COURT, CELLULAR PHONES ARE NOT PERMITTED IN THE U.S. COURTHOUSE. PLEASE LEAVE YOUR CELL PHONE IN YOUR CAR OR AT HOME.
