Jury Service in Mendocino County, California

Jury Service

Thank you for visiting the Court’s Jury Service webpage. If you have been summoned as a prospective juror and serve on a trial, you will be fulfilling an important obligation of US citizenship that dates back to the founding of our democracy. The right to a jury trial is found in the US Constitution.

The Court takes seriously its obligation to do all that it can to ensure that jurors’ health and safety are protected. To that end, the Court requires prospective and impaneled jurors to notify the Court if they feel ill.  The Court provides hand sanitizer stations throughout the courthouse.  By taking these public health precautions and by working together, the Court is confident that jurors will be able to perform their service safely.
