Qualification questionnaires are used to obtain information to determine if someone is qualified to serve as a juror. Qualification questionnaires will initially be sent as a postcard with online instructions, to be followed by a paper form if a prospective juror is unable to complete their information online. Summons may be completed online through eJUROR.

Jury service is an important civil and community duty. Through service on a jury, citizens have a direct hand in the administration of justice. Jury service is a privilege and responsibility that should be accepted with pride. The justice system cannot work fairly unless jurors perform their duties properly.

Jury service offers citizens the opportunity to be an active participant in this system; however, in order for our jury system to work, courts and employers must work together to ensure that all citizens are available to serve on juries when called. To this end, the "Protection of Jurors' Employment" statute (Title 28, U. S. Code, Section 1875) was enacted in 1978. This act strictly prohibits employers from discharging, threatening to discharge, intimidating, or coercing any permanent employee because the employee has served, or will serve, as a juror in any court of the United States.

BE AWARE: The Court's policy is not to contact prospective or active jurors to request personal information such as birth date, social security or credit card numbers.
