What hours will I serve?

Normal business hours for the court are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you are in the jury pool, your report time will be 9 a.m. everyday and you will need to remain in the jury assembly room until released for the day by the Jury Managers. You will be released for lunch from Noon to 1:30 p.m.

Release times each day will vary, but usually fall between 2 and 4 p.m. If you are seated as a sworn juror, the judge on your case will tell you what time to report each day. Please expect to be here until 5 p.m. when actually seated on a jury.
