Follow the directions for your group number. Your group number appears on the top right-hand side of your summons.

Group numbers 20-23 are to check this website or call the recorded message line on Tuesday, January 22 at 11:00 a.m. and be prepared for the possibility of needing to report at 12:30 p.m., one and one-half hours later.

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!
