I got a jury summons in the mail. What do I do?
First, don't panic! Second, please take the time to READ IT!! A common mistake many people make is simply not reading through the summons. Much time and preparation went into the design of our summons. Some of your initial questions and concerns will be easily addressed through the information contained in the jury summons itself. It will explain briefly your term of service, when and where to report, what to do if you have a request to be excused, how to handle mandatory disqualifications, courthouse location and parking information, dress code, contact phone numbers and information about this web site. If after reading through the summons and/or our web site and you still have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call us at (937) 440-3937. We will be glad to assist you in any way we can.
