Jury Duty Information
In the United States, jury service is a responsibility of
citizenship. The goal of a jury trial is to simply do justice.
In a jury trial, the authority to determine the facts and reach
a decision rest not with the government, but with a jury.
What can I expect as a juror?
Jury trials are conducted one week each month and uses a “one
week – one trial” jury system. Your term of service will last
for the duration of the selection process (a maximum of one
week, but typically 1-3 days) or the duration of one trial if
you are seated on a jury.
How do I know if I need to report?
You have three options to see if you will be required to report
to jury duty.
On the date and time that listed on your jury summons you will
need to call
(248) 871-2905 for a final confirmation of the need
to report. You will need your jury number which is located in
the bottom right corner of your jury summons. Your jury number
may be referenced whether you need to report.
If you would like to receive your final report confirmation by
email, please email the jury coordinator at
later than 4:30 PM on the Friday preceding your report date
which is located on your jury summons. The jury coordinator will
send email verification by 5:00 PM the day preceding your report
On the day you report:
When you arrive at the 47th District Court on the date and time
for which you have been summoned, you will be checked in by the
jury clerk and provided a juror badge and information manual.
