Beginning in September 2013, the Third Circuit Court introduced the new One-Step Juror Qualification/Questionnaire Form and Juror Summons. Please complete both the Part A - Qualification section and the Part B - Juror Questionnaire (Personal History) section. Please detach and retain the Summons portion of the form for future reference regarding your anticipated date of service. Please return the completed Part A and B portion of the Questionnaire in the envelope provided.
Failure to appear for service when instructed to do so can result in a Show Cause Hearing appearance as well as a possible contempt of court charge.
For your convenience the Quick Link for the Online Jury Questionnaire provides you with the opportunity to complete the Juror Qualification/Questionnaire Form online.

Wayne County jury service is a "one day/one trial" term of service. If you are selected to serve on a trial, you will serve only for the duration of that one trial. Average length of a trial is three (3) to four (4) days. Jurors not selected or not involved in a continuing selection at the end of the day will complete their service at the end of the day that they report.
