Persons chosen for jury service in the Courts of General Sessions and Common Pleas are exempted from further service in those courts for a period of three years following the year in which they served. The computer selection program marks the names of persons selected for service so that they cannot be chosen again until their exemption period has passed. However, this does not prevent you from being picked to serve on a Magistrate’s Court jury, Coroner’s Court jury or a Municipal (City) Court jury. The exemption period for Grand Jurors is five years following the year of service.
Municipal (City) Courts select juries independently of the County Courts, and may have different rules regarding jury selection and service.
