Even though I have received a Summons, is it possible that I will not be required to come to court during the dates shown?

Yes. It is impossible to predict the number of trials that will take place each week. Some of the jury trials that are scheduled are settled, dismissed, or otherwise resolved without requiring a jury. For this reason, we have implemented the juror call-in system. Jurors need to call 785-832-5108 after 5:30 p.m. on Fridays and Tuesdays during your jury service period, starting the Friday before your service starts. The recorded phone message will let jurors know if there’s any trials scheduled, and if so, which Juror Groups are being called; as well as when and where to report for Jury Duty.  If you have any questions, please contact the Jury Coordinator at Jury@douglascountyks.org or at 785-832-5213.
