Jury Service

The right to a trial by jury is a cornerstone of American democracy, guaranteed by both the State and Federal Constitutions. Over 180,000 Minnesotans are summoned for jury service every year. This site is dedicated to answering questions for prospective jurors, employers, and members of the public.

PLEASE BE AWARE: There is currently a nationwide identity theft scam where callers try to get personal information under the guise of missed jury duty. Minnesota court staff will never ask prospective jurors for financial information such as credit card or bank account information. We will also never ask for social security numbers over the phone. Do not provide this kind of information to anyone claiming to represent the court system. If you receive this kind of request, hang up and contact your county's jury office directly.
