Jury Services

You have been chosen, by random selection, from a list of persons holding a driver’s license or identification card issued by the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles for the honor and privilege of jury service. Your appearance is critical. The right to trial by jury is among the principles guaranteed by the Constitution and is a crucial part of our justice system. The Clerk & Comptroller’s Office thanks you for your jury service, and we hope your experience will be interesting and positive.

Jury trials are held in Dade City and New Port Richey. Where you are to report is provided on your jury summons. If you fail to report for jury service and have not obtained an excusal, the Court may impose a fine and hold you in contempt of court.

Important Notice – Scam Alert!

Jury summonses are mailed through the U.S. Postal Service. The Clerk & Comptroller’s Office never contacts by phone jurors who failed to appear. Additionally, law enforcement will not, and does not, demand payment, in lieu of arrest, due to failure to appear for jury service. Should you receive a phone call saying you have failed to report for jury service, and you are asked for personal information or payment, this is a potential scam.
