This message is for Eau Claire County residents who are serving on jury duty from December 9 through December 20, 2013:
There is one trial scheduled on Monday, December 9 and is expected to last one day. Jurors with Panel Member Number 1 through and including Panel Member Number 37 need to report to the Branch 2 courtroom no later than 8:30 a.m. on Monday morning.
All of the courtrooms are located on the 2nd floor of the Eau Claire County Courthouse. Please do not bring to court with you any gum, food, beverage or electronic device. If you bring an electronic device it will be secured by staff for the duration of the time you are at the courthouse.
Please bring a picture ID to show the jury clerk at the time that you check in for jury duty. At the time of check-in you will be asked what your round trip mileage is from your home to the courthouse. Please check your mileage on the way to the courthouse.
There is parking available in the main lot on Oxford Avenue and also on the corner of 1st and Grand Avenue, but since parking is limited, please arrive early.
Jury service is the obligation of every citizen. “Forgetting” to show up is not an excuse. In fairness to jurors who do show up for jury duty, we are holding those who do not appear accountable for their actions. Consequently, the court will issue a warrant for the arrest of those jurors who fail to appear.
Trials that are still scheduled:
Monday, December 9 (1 trial set for one day)
Tuesday, December 17 (1 trial set for one day)
Thursday, December 19 (one trial set for one day)
