Why your Participation Matters

Whether or not you are selected to serve on a jury, your participation is critical to one of the most fundamental principles of our free society - the right to a jury trial.

Your participation as a juror is essential to our common law system of justice. Our system affords all persons going to trial the opportunity to have the facts of their case determined by a jury of their peers.

 

Request for Postponement/Excusal/Deferral

If you have a scheduling conflict, you may request a postponement from your assigned service date. Your first postponement request will be granted upon demand. Additional requests, however, will be granted only if you can provide proof of undue hardship.

For expedited processing, requests may be submitted online through our Juror Website or via e-mail at Jury@leeclerk.org.

Requests submitted online for postponement may be viewed immediately after submission. A new summons with a new report number will be mailed to your address five weeks prior to your new service date.

Requests submitted online for excusal will display after two business days. If approved your status will display as "Ended". If your status displays as "Summoned", your request for excusal was denied and you must report on the date indicated.

If you submitted your request via e-mail or US Mail, you will receive a postcard.

 

Jury Scams

Past or prospective jurors are never contacted by the Clerk regarding failure to serve jury duty. No court staff or Lee County Sheriff’s staff ask past or prospective jurors to pay a fine or provide financial details including, credit card numbers, bank account, social security numbers or other personal information. If contacted about your jury service, please do not provide this type of information to anyone and report the activity to law enforcement.

 

Work Certificate

Employers may require proof of your participation of jury service. The Court provides you, upon request, a Certificate of Jury Service that identifies the date(s) you served anytime after you have completed your service. You may also use our on-line Juror Website to download your Certificate of Jury Service.

To receive your work certificate, you will need your Juror ID number located below the barcode on your summons, and your date of birth to access the system. Select the option titled 'Service Certificate'.
