A Message From Tani Cantil-Sakauye, Chief Justice of California

"Trial by jury is one of the fundamental ideals of American democracy; serving as jurors reminds us that these ideals exist only as long as individual citizens are willing to uphold them."  


The Judicial Council of California and staff of the superior courts will never ask past or prospective jurors for financial information, credit card numbers, bank account information, or personal information like Social Security numbers. Do not provide this type of information to anyone claiming to be associated with the courts. En español.
