Jury Duty Service Length

You are on call for one day or the length of one trial. If required to report to the courthouse on your assigned Report Date, you may or may not be selected to hear the case. If you are not selected to hear the case, you will be released by the judge and your jury service is complete.  If you are selected to hear the case, you will serve on that case for its duration until released by the judge. While most jury trials are completed in a single day, some are estimated to take more than one day to complete. Please plan accordingly.

Please note: if you are summoned but not selected to report for jury duty, you may be summoned again later in the year if all of the current jury pool is used. This does not usually happen; however, the number of jury trials in a given year are unpredictable.
