Jury Duty Information
This message is for Eau Claire County residents who are serving on jury duty from September 15th through September 26th, 2014:
The six-day trial that was scheduled to start on Monday, September 22 has canceled. There is still a two-day trial tentatively scheduled to start on Wednesday, September 24, so all jurors should continue to check this message daily after 3:30 p.m. for further updates.
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:
Wednesday, September 24 (1 trial set for two days)
SEPTEMBER IS JUROR APPRECIATION MONTH
September has been designated as a time in which to recognize the importance of jurors to the American justice system. The judges, clerks and attorneys who work in the system year-round have created this opportunity to acknowledge all individuals who are summoned to serve in Wisconsin each year – people who have set aside their work and personal lives to ensure that this cornerstone of American justice perseveres. Juror Appreciation Month is only 30 days, but the courts appreciate the work of jurors year-round.
