Planned maintenance on the Minnesota Judicial Branch website will take place on Friday, May 24, from 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. The website may be inaccessible during that period, but all applications, such as eFile and eServe (eFS) and access to case records (MPA Remote), will still be available.

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 jurors whose term began on Monday, May 20.

No trials are scheduled to begin for the remainder of this week.  You will not have to check this website, call the recording or report this week.

Please check this website or call the recorded message line after 5 p.m. on Friday, May 24, or sometime over the weekend. 

Note:  We are closed on Monday in honor of Memorial Day.  The next date jurors may potentially need to report would be on Tuesday, May 28th.

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.  It is a busy day so also allow time for parking.  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!
