Grand jurors only need to report to the Orientation session listed on their summons. Anyone selected to serve on the grand jury will receive additional scheduling information after Orientation is complete.
If you receive a “Special Summons” you will receive a specific date and time to appear for orientation.
Petit jurors may be scheduled on any of the days during their 2 weeks of service. Those jurors must check the jury schedule during those 2 weeks. The schedule for the upcoming week is available after 4:30 PM on the Friday before and is available all weekend by calling the Jury Line 541.967.3828 or checking our Jury Schedule page. The daily jury schedule is available Monday - Thursday after 4:30 PM.
The recorded schedule on the Jury Line will list a range of juror numbers (such as “jurors 350 – 500”), so listen for a group of numbers that includes your juror number. The online jury schedule will list each individual juror number that has been called.
Check the jury schedule the weekend before the first week of your 2 week term for your juror number. If your number is not listed for the upcoming week, check it again the next weekend. If your juror number is not called for either week of your 2 week term, then you are finished with jury duty and don’t need to check the jury schedule any longer.
If your juror number is listed on the schedule for the upcoming week, take note of which day you need to report. It is very important that you check the jury schedule again the night before your service. Any time after 4:30 PM you can check the jury schedule to confirm that you are still required to come in. The schedule will also tell you what time and where you need to report on your scheduled day. Trials are sometimes canceled the day before they are supposed to start. We would hate to see you report to the courthouse on a day when you aren’t needed!
If you are scheduled to report during the first week of your 2 week term, please check the jury schedule again the next weekend. We try very hard to not ask anyone to come in twice, but sometimes the court’s schedule will cause us to bring you in a second time. It is rare, but you should always check both weekends before your scheduled weeks of service to ensure you don’t miss your scheduled.
