Jury Summons Information

Trial Duration:

Trials vary in length.  Jury Services will advise you of probable trial duration and may excuse you from serving on a particular case if your service amounts to extreme hardship.

Term of Service:

Your service will not exceed one trial during a 12-month period. In most cases, jury trials are conducted from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with brief recesses during the day and at least a one hour lunch break.

Jury Fees:

You are not paid for your first day of service.  The second and all days after you are paid $15.00 per day as set by the State Legislature.  You may also receive mileage compensation at the rate of .34 cents per mile, one-way from home. 

Proof of Service:

Certification of your appearance for Jury Duty is required by some employers and will be furnished upon request.

Security of Juror Information and Court Contacts

Please be advised that official Court personnel do not request personal information from jurors by telephone.

If you receive a telephone call from someone identifying themselves as a court employee and requesting personal information such as a social security number, date of birth, credit card numbers, etc. please contact the fraud unit at your local law enforcement agency. Please also contact our Jury Services Unit at (707) 269-1270 option 2.

Juror Parking Information

On your summons there is a Parking Permit that should be placed in plain view on your vehicle dashboard.

Your parking permit allows you to park in the 2 hour street parking only. You are not required to move your vehicle after 2 hours. All other areas you will follow the posted rules, even with a Juror parking permit. Parking in private lots, 12, 15 or 30 minute zones or other restricted areas will likely result in a ticket or your vehicle could even be towed. 

Special Accommodations

If you need certain accommodations such as assistance with a wheelchair, hearing amplification, or special seating, contact jury services by calling Jury Services at 707-269-1270, or by following the link below and following the ADA Accommodation request instructions (complete/return form MC410 or submit a request via email). Let us know what you will need. If we cannot reasonably accommodate you, you may request to be excused from jury service.
