Shorts and tank tops are not appropriate courtroom attire.

Some feedback from previous jurors:

"I loved being able to serve my country in a really cool way. I got to see the law in action and learn a lot. It should be called ‘jury privilege’ instead of ‘jury duty.’ I am so lucky to be a part of a nation where jury duty is even a thing. Thanks for giving me this wonderful opportunity!”

“The courtesy, helpfulness, and friendliness of the staff, lawyers, and the judge. I also really appreciated the amenities provided for jurors; comfortable, clean waiting room, movies, and availability of food.”



“I consider [trial by jury] as the only anchor ever yet imagined by man, by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution.”
–Thomas Jefferson
