Jury Service Contact Information

The case management policies shaped by the Presiding Judge, or the judges assigned to the various chief judge positions, are given effect by the Office of the Trial Court Administrator and its staff. Often questions regarding usual practices before the Court can be answered by a phone call to the appropriate section of the Presiding Judge’s Office or the Court Administrator's Office. During the current budgetary conditions, phone hours are less than business hours for operations divisions including the circuit court file room. These hours are subject to change as the circuit court is required to cut staff positions to comply with declining funding for its daily operations.
