WHAT TO EXPECT:

When you report for jury selection you will be entering the courthouse through a security screening access point. Do not bring any items with you that may be confiscated. The uniformed officers will not allow you to enter the courthouse nor will they "save" items for you that are deemed to be inappropriate or a weapon. This delay in attending jury is not a valid reason to be late. The line to enter the courthouse may be long due to the number of patrons and the screening process, please arrive early and take that into consideration. , you may or may not be selected for actual jury trials. Bring your summons, parking pass and any written confirmation of dates of upcoming vacations, doctor or work related appointments that you will not be available with you to all jury selections. Also, you MUST dress accordingly i.e. no shorts, sweats, tank tops or bare midriffs you will be required to change your attire and return to jury selection. 

 

If you were selected to serve on a jury trial you must report unless the Jury Management Division contacts you directly (even if your panel has completed its service).
