Request Postponement / Excused

If a prospective juror encounters circumstances, such as personal emergencies, reasonable accommodations will be made to postpone service to a later date. Every special circumstance will be addressed on an individual basis and should be referred to the Clerk's Office.


If there is a medical reason why a person cannot serve, a physician's written verification which details why the juror cannot serve and the length or duration of the illness or problem must be provided. The juror will be notified of the acceptance or denial of the request.

Request for Postponements:

If a juror has vacation plans or special appointments and/or events during the term that he or she is scheduled for jury duty, he or she may request to have their jury duty postponed to a different term. Notice will be mailed of the postponement and the juror will be resummoned at a later date. Please do not call the Clerk's Office asking to be excused over the phone as phone requests cannot be considered.
