Upon arrival, you will be escorted to the waiting room. Once the parties are present, you will be escorted into the Courtroom. The Judge will explain the jury process and give you an overview of the case and the process of introducing you to the attorneys and selecting a jury will begin. It will take approximately one - two hours to question and select eight jurors and an alternate. If you were not selected as a juror, your service is complete and you may leave.
If you are selected as a juror or alternate, you will be given access to a phone to contact your family and/or employer. There will be a one hour recess for lunch, usually from noon to 1 p.m. You are free to leave the building and do whatever you wish during that timeframe. Breaks will be taken as needed.
