Jury Duty

Welcome to the Superior Court of Placer County’s New Online Jury Portal.

 

IMPORTANT: A status in the online jury portal of CONFIRMED means you have completed the jury questionnaire and are eligible to serve. Please be sure to review the reporting date field before reporting for jury duty.

 

To sign in for your Jury Duty, visit the Online Jury Portal and Ability to Serve Questionnaire.

Using the Online Jury Portal – What You Need to Know

If this is your first time visiting the new Online Jury Portal, please read the below in its entirety for important information about your jury service.

What can I do in the Jury Online Portal?

  • Check the status of your service
  • Confirm when you need to come to the courthouse
  • Request deferrals to a future date
  • Request excusal from service
  • Print your attendance information for your employer or your records

 

The first time you log in each time after you have been summoned, you will also be asked a series of questions to confirm you are qualified to serve as a juror in Placer County. This should take no more than five (5) minutes to complete and may enable you to have a later reporting time when called for Jury Duty.

I AM CALLED TO REPORT IN THE MORNING, WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

 

Bring your jury summons with you when you report.

 

I’M CALLED TO REPORT IN THE AFTERNOON, DO I NEED TO DO ANYTHING ELSE?

 

Yes. Check your status again two (2) hours prior to your scheduled time because you may no longer be needed. If it still indicates an afternoon schedule, report as instructed. If you see Confirmed (Service Complete) then you no longer need to report. Thank you! You will receive an email and/or text notifying you that your service is complete.

I am seated as a juror; do I still need to use the Online Jury Portal?

 

The Court will provide you with instructions once you are seated as a juror.

Please keep your contact information current in the Online Jury Portal, however, in the event something changes and we need to notify you of a change in the trial schedule.
