Jury Service

A MESSAGE FROM JUDGE DAVID E. NELSON:

Serving as jurors reminds us that these ideals exist only as long as individual citizens are willing to uphold them. Picture yourself or your child accused of a crime—you would want a jury of your peers to make this important decision rather than a jury of only one segment of the community.

In my experience, jurors who are selected to serve on a jury usually report that they enjoyed being a part of the process and that they learned a great deal in sitting as jurors. They find it uplifting to be a part of deliberations with fellow citizens to reach a just result.

Welcome to the Mendocino County Superior Court and thank you for serving as a juror.
