What you are required to do when you receive a summons?

All courts in Los Angeles County are under the One Trial term of service. You are required to do the following when you receive a summons:

  • Complete Section A of the jury summons.
  • Register yourself for service by calling (213) 972-0970 within five (5) days of receiving your summons. You may also register online by selecting My Jury Duty Portal.
  • During your week of service (beginning the weekend prior to your service) telephone (213) 972-0970, as instructed on the summons, or by selecting My Jury Duty Portal to receive instructions on when to report for jury service during your five (5) day period.

If you are not required to report during this five (5) day period, your jury service is complete for 12 months. If you are asked to report and not assigned to a case on the day you report, your term of service will be concluded at the end of the business day. However, if you are assigned to a courtroom for jury selection that is not completed by the end of that day, you will be required to return to finish the selection process.

If you are selected to serve on a trial, your term of service will be the length of that trial. Most trials last from five to seven days.

When you have been chosen for an actual trial or as an alternate juror, your service obligation will be fulfilled upon the conclusion of deliberations, regardless of whether or not a verdict has been reached.
