Jury Duty

Prospective Jurors' names are drawn by lot. In most cases your service as a juror will be one (1) day only, and you will be called twice before your name is removed from the jury pool.

It is important that you call the Clerk's office, (330-652-5863), between the hours of 8:00 am and 3:30 pm. the day before your scheduled appearance to confirm that the trial is going forward. If the trial is scheduled on a Monday, please call on Friday.

Jury service gives citizens the opportunity to participate in the judicial process. Anyone requesting to be excused from jury duty MUST appear before the Judge on the morning scheduled, or have a medical excuse from your physician.

Please wear proper attire when reporting for jury duty. Casual business clothing is appropriate in the court room.

For your convenience parking spaces are located behind the safety-service complex and on the side of the building.

Payment for Jury Duty Services will be mailed to the jurors. Currently the rate is $10.00 a day.
