If any of the tabs at the top of the page are enabled, e.g. grayed out, this means that the option is not available to you at this time. These options may not be available because:

  1. You have not completed your “MyInfo” information;

The online orientation takes approximately one hour to complete. Online Orientation is not available to you during your reporting week. This is because the Court requires significant time in advance to develop daily reports for reporting jurors.

Online Services include:

The amount of time you save will depend on the court to which you have been summoned. You will not have to participate in the In-House orientation process. To access the online orientation select the “Orientation” tab on the Jury Duty Portal.
