Jury Service is your civic duty. The United States Constitution and the Texas Constitution guarantees all people, regardless of race, religion, sex, national origin, or economic status, the right to trial by an impartial jury. A juror's actions and decisions must be free of any bias or prejudice. This is the foundation of our judicial system.
The jury summons is a legal notice. If a person fails to report for jury duty, he/she will be in violation of State Law. Violation of this law is punishable by a fine of $100.00.
