If you have received a Juror Qualification Questionnaire, please read this section of the website carefully. The Questionnaire is not a summons for jury service. Your name has been drawn by random selection and you are being considered for jury service in the United States District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia.
Every two years, the United States District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia refills its jury wheels with names of potential qualified jurors. To begin this process, the Court mails Juror Qualification Questionnaires to potential federal jurors residing in the Southern District of West Virginia. Names are randomly selected from lists of registered voters for the counties that comprise the Southern District of West Virginia. During the next few months, the jury staff will process the completed Juror Qualification Questionnaires. Please complete the Questionnaire and return to the Court within ten (10) days.
The Court then creates pools or lists of qualified jurors who may be randomly selected to serve on grand or petit jury panels in the federal court. Our jury staff uses an automated jury system to randomly choose names to summons as potential jurors
