CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)


In response to the health concerns raised by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Orange County Superior Court closed to the public on Tuesday, March 17, 2020. This includes jury trials. If your date to report for jury service falls on a date that the Court is closed, your service will be automatically excused.

Based on how the health concerns continue to grow, we recommend checking back with the Court next week by visiting our website at www.occourts.org for the latest information on the Court closure.


JURY SCAMS

Jury staff of the Orange County Superior Court will not ask past or prospective jurors for information regarding cash cards, credit cards, bank account information and social security numbers. Please do not provide this type of information to anyone claiming to be associated with or representing the Orange County Superior Court jury system.

By accessing the “juror-portal” WiFi network on your mobile device, you may now check-in for service and obtain access to free WiFi.

Jury Service is mandatory and prospective jurors’ names are obtained from voter registration and DMV records. Service may be required as often as once per year and can be from one day to the length of one trial, starting at 8:00 a.m. and ending at 5:00 p.m. Business casual attire is suggested. Shorts and tank tops are not appropriate courtroom attire.

Some feedback from previous jurors:

"I loved being able to serve my country in a really cool way. I got to see the law in action and learn a lot. It should be called ‘jury privilege’ instead of ‘jury duty.’ I am so lucky to be a part of a nation where jury duty is even a thing. Thanks for giving me this wonderful opportunity!”

“The courtesy, helpfulness, and friendliness of the staff, lawyers, and the judge. I also really appreciated the amenities provided for jurors; comfortable, clean waiting room, movies, and availability of food.”



“I consider [trial by jury] as the only anchor ever yet imagined by man, by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution.”
–Thomas Jefferson
