AJIS TOLL FREE NUMBER: 1-800-427-1153
Our court uses an automated telephone system to notify jurors when they are to appear for a jury trial and to update them of their status and to provide reporting instructions. You will need to have your Participant Number located on your Summons or Notice to Appear when you call. The automated system will ask you to enter your nine-digit participant number, which is located just below your name/address on your Summons or Notice to Appear. Our automated system also provides a computer-generated courtesy reminder call, so please be certain to provide your telephone number on the Juror Information Form you return to the court so we may contact you, as needed.
You will be instructed to call in after 5:00 P.M. on the day before you are to report. If you are scheduled to appear on a Monday, you may call after 5:00 P.M. on Sunday. The call is free and can be dialed from any location. You will be directed to report either on the date summoned, or rescheduled to appear on another date during your term, and will be instructed to call the automated message again to confirm after 5:00 P.M. the night before you are scheduled to report.
Cases can settle or be dismissed shortly before trial. It is imperative that you call the automated system before you report for service. YOU WILL NOT BE PAID IF YOU REPORT FOR JURY SERVICE AND THE RECORDED MESSAGE NOTIFIED YOU NOT TO APPEAR.
You do not need to call the automated system after you have been selected to serve as a juror in a case in progress. The presiding Judge or courtroom clerk will give you instructions when you are to return to court.
