Serving as a juror is a fundamental obligation we all share as citizens of the United States. Only by having people like you participate in the process can we ensure that all persons in federal court will be afforded their constitutional right to have a jury pool drawn from a fair cross section of this area. Jury service sometimes requires sacrifices and may mean rearranging schedules, canceling appointments, or missing work. Yet serving as a juror is an important civic and community duty, as well as a privilege and responsibility. Those who serve as jurors have an opportunity to see the courts in action and to actively participate in a fundamental democratic process. We extend our sincere appreciation for your jury service and trust that you will find your experience rewarding.

The Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts is warning the public about calls from people claiming to be from the federal courts. These callers say a juror summons was ignored, threaten legal action, and request personal information from the citizen. The calls may lead to fraud.
