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, September 9.
Jurors will not have to check this website, call the recorded message line, or report any more this week, unless you have been selected on a trial. We do not have any additional trials scheduled for the remainder of the week. Your term has now been completed and you have fulfilled your obligation.
If you are checking on jury service for the two-week term that begins on September 23, information regarding that term will not be posted until September 20, after 5:00 p.m.
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!
