Jury Duty is a civic duty of each citizen. If someone fails to respond to jury summons, the court may hold the person in contempt. Similarly, a person who fails to complete jury service without first getting permission from the court may be punished for contempt. If you receive a summons but cannot comply with the summons, you must follow the procedures to be excused or deferred by the court. The steps for requesting to be excused from jury service or to defer your jury service is available on our website on the Deferring Service page or the Request to be Excused page. Additional information is also available at Juror Handbook on the Oregon State Bar website.
You must call the Jury Recording Line after 5:00 p.m. the night before your term begins to determine if you have been chosen for jury duty. If your number has been chosen, you will need to report the next day for jury orientation and jury selection. The time you are to report will be included on the recording. You do not need to report if your number was not chosen. The Jury Recording Line is 503.655.8389. Toll Free Number is 1.800.562.4698.
