Prospective Jurors 

Prospective Jurors may check this page for additional information regarding pending service.  

  

You may have been sent a summons to report as a traverse juror.  A traverse juror may be seated in a criminal or civil matter.  A traverse juror will sit for the duration of a trial and will deliberate the facts of the case as presented in court.  A traverse juror, also known as a petit juror or trial juror, is a citizen who has been selected to serve on a trial jury in a legal action or prosecution.  Please click here for the State Bar of Georgia Juror's Manual.

  

Juror Instructions will appear here regarding when to reappear.  For example, if the jury is released on a Monday to return on a Thursday, those instructions will appear here and will be published on the Jury Information Line at 248-3007.  All jurors MUST attend the first day of court regardless of the instructions here UNLESS they have been legally  excused or deferred.  If you have not signed an affidavit or other paper for the Clerk of Superior Court or the Court, you have not been legally deferred or excused.
