Find Out If You Need to Appear for Jury Duty
Because scheduled jury trials sometimes settle or are re-scheduled, Waukesha County uses a voice mail recording system to inform jurors if it is necessary to actually appear on the date(s) that appear on the summons.
To determine when to report for jury service, you must call the Jury Information line at 262-548-7531 after 5:00 p.m. on the night before each date listed on your summons. Listen carefully to the entire recorded message and follow the instructions carefully. The message will tell you whether you should report, whether there has been a change in the time you are to report, or any other information that could affect your service. Please listen to the entire message carefully.
Jurors must appear on the date(s) listed on their summons unless the message tells them otherwise. PLEASE BE ON TIME.
Find Out Where to Appear for Jury Duty
On the first day of service, jurors are to report to the Jury Assembly Room CG-6, which is located on the ground floor of the courthouse, one floor below the main entrance. From the security screening station at the main entrance to the courthouse, either walk straight ahead to the elevator and take it down one floor to the ground floor, or take the stairway to the left of the screening station down one flight to the ground floor. Turn left from the elevator or stairway and the Jury Assembly Room will be just a short distance on your right. PLEASE BE ON TIME!
If you are selected to serve on a jury trial that will last more than one day, the Judge in the trial will provide you with information on where you should report after the first day of the trial.
What Should I Bring?
Jurors are required to show picture identification when checking into the Jury Assembly Room.
What Should I Wear?
Business casual is recommended. Formal attire is not necessary, but informal attire such as shorts, halters, tank tops or shirts with offensive messages are not appropriate in court. Hats are not allowed unless worn for religious purposes. Jurors are advised to dress in layers as the temperature in the jury assemby area and in the courtrooms may be unpredictable.
