Jury Duty

Important: Jury service staff will NEVER call a potential juror and request personal information such as a social security number, credit card number, or any other sensitive information. Please do not give out any such information over the phone to anyone who claims to be with the courts.

Jury Duty Information

Your responsibility as a juror is to decide the facts and apply the law impartially without favor or prejudice toward any person or group, regardless of income, sex, race, creed, or country of origin.

Jury service is the fulfillment of a high civil obligation and a valuable privilege. There is no more vital work you can perform in support of your fellow citizens in the exercise of self-government than by an honest fulfillment of jury service. Conscientious service brings its own reward in the personal satisfaction that an important task has been well done. The effectiveness of our system of justice is measured by the integrity and dedication of the jurors who serve in our courts.

The courts operate from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, except holidays. The reporting time for prospective jurors is usually 9:00 a.m. depending upon the court's needs, you may be asked to report later during the day.

Tulare County has a one-tiered court system, the superior court. The system includes superior court judges and commissioners. The superior court has jurisdiction over all misdemeanor and felonies and criminal and civil cases.
