Jury Duty

The right to a trial by jury is the privilege of every person in the United States, whether that person is a citizen or not. This right is guaranteed by both the U.S. and California Constitutions.

Trials, which allow two or more parties to settle disputes, are decided by a judge alone or decided by a jury. The role of the jury is to make an impartial decision based on information presented during the criminal or civil trial.
