Dakota County Juror Reporting Information

Jurors must keep in contact with us throughout their term.  You will need to check this website or call the jury message line, (651) 438-8181, whenever you are directed to do so.  

Follow the directions for your group number.  Your group number appears on the top right-hand side of your summons.  
 
This message is for all Jurors with the term beginning  June 29, 2020:

Due to the current pandemic, there will be no jury trials prior to July 20, 2020. You are not required to report right now.  If your service is needed, you will receive written notice when trials start again. 

When you report for jury service, come to the Jury Assembly Room on the lower level of the Judicial Center in Hastings.  We are the center building of the U-shaped complex numbered 1560.  There are security measures similar to airport screening so please allow time for this procedure.  Do not bring any sharp objects with you as they may be confiscated.  This includes metal silverware.  We do not have a cafeteria in the courthouse.  There is a refrigerator and microwave available for your use, along with plastic utensils.  You should wear neat, comfortable clothes; however, shorts are not acceptable.  Wireless internet access is also available.

Thank you for your service!
