How can I be excused from jury duty?

We encourage everyone to serve jury duty when summoned. It is an interesting and rewarding experience, as well as being a civic responsibility. Before requesting to be excused, you should consider the following: If you were to be involved in a case that went to a jury of your peers for judgment, who would you want to be on that panel? You probably would want people, who, like yourself, are capable of making reasoned and informed decisions. Should you ever require the service of your peers on a jury, it stands to reason that you should be willing to provide the service as well. However, for good cause shown, you may be excused from jury duty. Please contact the Jury Coordinator at 785-832-5213 to request a dismissal from jury duty.
