A first request for postponement of jury service may be granted for many reasons including, but not limited to, adult care, work issues, vacation, or a pursuit of educational opportunities; however, only the summoned juror may request a postponement. Requests made by employers or other individuals will not be acknowledged.
Online deferral requests may be available to those who have had no prior postponements and are submitting their requests at least seven (7) business days prior to their service date. Please enter the juror number and service date listed on your summons at the bottom of this page to see if you are eligible for an online deferral.
Second or subsequent requests for deferral OR requests made less than seven (7) business days before the scheduled service date must be in writing and are subject to approval. These written requests must be submitted either by:
