IMPORTANT: If you have any travel plans, important work obligations, appointments of any kind, or anything that could possibly conflict with your jury service, notify the Jury Commissioner IN WRITING as soon as possible, by using this link. Once your juror number is drawn for a jury trial, it is too late for you to be excused, unless it is an emergency. DO NOT DELAY NOTIFYING THE JURY COMMISSIONER OF IMPORTANT INFORMATION OR POSSIBLE CONFLICTS.

Note: If your number is drawn for an upcoming jury trial, the Jury Clerk cannot grant your excusal/postponement request. You would be required to report for that trial, and your excusal would be determined by the Presiding Judge and the attorneys on that trial.
