The truth of the matter is that many local courts are working on pilot programs to bring back jury trials these days but that any prospective jurors will be contacted via mail/summons and will be provided information on attending or seeking excuse from attending. Even if you should inadvertently miss jury duty, Seniors should know that law and judicial officers DO NOT enforce jury attendance by demanding fees or “fines”. If you have any questions about jury duty, attendance they should instead contact their local Clerk of Court (jury division) to inquire accordingly.
