BASIC JURY SERVICE INFORMATION

What to Expect

Jury service is one of our most important civic duties.  The right to a jury trial is the privilege of every person in the United States and is guaranteed by both the United States and California Constitutions.  Jury trials are held in both Criminal and Civil actions. Jurors' names are obtained from voter registration, DMV records and the Franchise Tax Board. Service may be required as often as once per year and can be anywhere from a couple hours to the length of an entire trial, starting at 8:00 a.m., and ending at 5:00 p.m. 

What to Wear

Business attire is suggested. No bare feet, shorts, tank-tops, shirts with graphics or offensive language are permitted in the courtrooms.

Entering a Court Facility

When entering any court facility you may be screened through a security device. Do not bring knives, scissors, handwork needles, crochet hooks, metal nail files, screwdrivers, tools, wallet chains, handcuff keys, or any item that may be used as a weapon.

Warning: All persons entering court facilities are subject to search.  All weapons are prohibited.  It is a felony to bring firearms or other unauthorized weapons into court buildings.  This includes all knives, tear gases such as pepper spray and mace, taser and stun guns, or deadly weapons pursuant to Penal Code Section 171b.  Items considered weapons will be confiscated upon entering.

Parking

Parking is located on the upper lot near the main entrance of the courthouse. (Note: Please do not try to park in the gated parking lot, it is for employees only.)
