I have been called for jury duty in Circuit Court. Am I required to show up?
Yes. The law requires you to respond to a jury summons. If you do not, you risk being found in contempt of court. However, cases which are set for trial often are settled at the last minute, so we strongly recommend that you call the court on the Friday prior to the Monday that you are to appear to see if the jury trial which you were called for is still scheduled. If you call after hours, a recording will tell you whether the trial is still scheduled. If the trial is canceled, you will be given further instructions on when to appear next. Further instructions may also be given on the home page of the Circuit Court website. Generally, if a trial is canceled, you will be summoned to appear at the next scheduled trial date.
