Welcome to jury service. We sincerely hope that your stay with us will provide you with an enjoyable, interesting, educational, and meaningful experience regarding the law, the Courts, and our own system of justice.
To decide cases correctly, jurors must be honest and intelligent. They must have both integrity and judgement. The jury system is based on these attributes. Jurors must decide the facts and apply the law impartially. They must not favor the rich or the poor. They must treat alike all men and women, corporations, and individuals. Justice should be rendered to all persons, regardless of race, color, or creed.
The performance of jury service is the fulfillment of a civil and moral obligation. Conscientious service brings its own reward in the satisfaction of an important task well done. There is no more valuable work that a citizen can perform in support of the judicial system of government than the full and honest discharge of jury duty.
The purpose of the following information is to familiarize you with some of the facets of jury service. It is not intended to advise you about the law, as this is the Judge's responsibility. The law can be different in each case.
