What happens if I don't report for jury duty?


Any juror who fails to report for jury duty and who is not excused by the court may be served with a show cause order by the U.S. Marshal. Subsequently, those jurors will be required to appear in court to show cause why they should not be held in contempt of the Jury Selection Act. Contempt penalties range from a fine of $1000 to three days imprisonment, or both.
