Postponement / Deferral of Service
First Deferral Request: If you are unable to report on your service date, you may request that your service be delayed to start at least 3 months (90 days) from your report date but no later than one year from your original service date. The Court may allow deferrals (postponements) for good cause. We ask that you provide 10 other dates at least 90 days out, but not longer than 1 year, that you would be available. You will be required to serve on one of those dates you chose when summoned. A new jury summons will be sent to you for the new term of jury service.
Second Deferral Request: A second deferral may be granted by a judge or clerk for up to six months from the date of the request. The person requesting a deferral beyond a first postponement of jury service must state good cause for the request and provide a list of not less than 10 dates within the six-month period following the date of the request on which the person would be able to commence jury duty. You will be required to serve on one of those dates you chose when summoned. A new jury summons will be sent to you for the new term of jury service.
Days You May Defer To: You may defer your service to any day of the week, except for Monday, as this is not a day that jurors typically report for jury duty at Clackamas County Courthouse.
You may submit your request to be deferred via regular mail, fax, or e-mail.
