Morris County Jury Duty Information

Checking Status on Website

Please check your jury summons to determine the date you need to report. Then click on "Jury Trial Status" below and find your report date for the most current status.

If the jury trial you are to report for indicates that it is “currently going as scheduled”, you will need to check back again after 5:30 p.m. the evening before you are scheduled to appear. If it says “going as scheduled”, you need to report for jury duty.

Jury Trial Status

Jury Trials Are Subject to Change

Jury duty status could change after 5:30 p.m. on Friday for Monday jury trials, and if so, it would not necessarily be accurately reflected on this website. However, the message on the phone line (the number is in the next paragraph) will be accurate after 5:30 p.m. the evening before the scheduled jury trial. So for Monday jury trials that indicate they are going as scheduled, please be sure to call Sunday evening after 5:30 p.m. or early Monday morning to determine if you still need to appear.

You may also call 620-767-6838, Option 2, after 5:30 p.m. the evening before you are scheduled to appear. If there is no answer or message on the service about your appearance date, you should appear as set forth. When a cancellation has taken place, a message will be placed on the service for your information.
