Jury Service

Oakland County Circuit Court Jury Service is cancelled through February 19, 2021.  You do not need to report.

JURORS WITH DATES FEBRUARY 22, 2021 AND LATER  -  PLEASE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON YOUR JURY SUMMONS FOR REPORTING INSTRUCTIONS.

JURORS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR A MASK IN THE COURTHOUSE AND MUST PROVIDE THEIR “JURY SUMMONS” WHEN ENTERING THE COURTHOUSE.

DUE TO SOCIAL DISTANCING REQUIREMENTS, WE ASK THAT ONLY JURORS ARRIVE FOR JURY SERVICE.  PLEASE DO NOT HAVE FRIENDS OR FAMILY ACCOMPANY YOU WHILE SERVING.

The following information applies to Circuit Court jurors only.

Please check your summons for specific court location.

Before you come to the courthouse for jury service, be sure to call the juror information line at 248-294-1063.  A recorded announcement will tell you whether or not you need to report for jury service on a following day.  It is your responsibility to call the jury information line after 5:00 p.m. the day before you are scheduled to appear for jury selection.  You may also check your status online in the eResponse system or by texting 248-294-1063.  You will need your ten-digit candidate I.D. number, which is located in the upper right hand corner of your summons.  If you do not have your ten-digit candidate I.D. number, you will need to call during business hours, 8:30am to 5:00pm, and speak directly to a clerk.

By Court Order, individuals entering the Courthouse are to abide by the following court rules:

  • All individuals must pass through metal detectors and may be searched. Purses, briefcases or other containers may be searched as well.
  • Please review the courts policy on the use of portable electronic equipment 
  • All electronic equipment brought with you must be turned entirely off and silent while in a courtroom. The court may order jurors to turn over to the court their portable electronic devices during deliberations.

Please Note: If you receive a call from anyone claiming to be from Oakland County Circuit Court Jury Office, please be advised that our staff would never call you to ask for social security numbers, credit card numbers or pre-pay card numbers.  We may, however, call to ask for clarification of information you filled out on your returned questionnaire.
