Jury Duty


Jury Duty is the obligation of every citizen to serve on a jury when called. When summoned for jury duty, a citizen must appear before the court or be tried for contempt of court.  Jurors are selected at random and are paid for their time.

Can I Be Excused from Jury Duty?

One of the highest duties of citizenship, jury duty accrues from the constitutional right to be tried by a panel of one's peers and involves direct participation in the administration of justice. As such, only a judge can excuse you from jury duty. Your employer must allow you time off to serve on a jury.
