About Your Jury Service

Jury service is an important responsibility. It is also a privilege which has been earned over a period of time and must be carefully used and preserved. Each juror has a direct hand in making our justice system work. Daily news reports from the Middle East, Asia, and Africa show that citizens are being unfairly deprived of freedom and property. Your effort helps our American system preserve the right to a fair trial and the guarantee of a jury comprised of fellow citizens -- a jury of one's peers.
