Trial by jury (also known as petit or regular jury duty) is a cornerstone of our democracy. The Oregon and United States Constitutions protect our right to jury trial. Jury duty is one of the most important rights and responsibilities of American citizenship. All persons chosen for jury duty are selected at random from combined lists of registered voters and DMV records.
IF YOU RECEIVED A SUMMONS:
All requests to be deferred or excused should be submitted through the Online Juror Response Form. When your request is processed you will receive a status notification.
It is the jurors' responsibility to submit ALL unavailability dates for their term to the courts in writing, with proper documentation. Unavailability dates submitted later than 24-hours prior to a scheduled call-in date, or once a juror has been called to report for a trial, cannot be approved by the Jury Coordinator. Those instructed to report for a jury or grand jury are expected to be available for the full length of the trial.
