Who can be excused from jury service?
Very few people are excused from jury duty once your term has started. Jurors will be excused only upon a demonstration of undue hardship or extreme inconvenience or for other reasons provided by law.

Prior to your term starting, please inform the Jury Manager if you have a physical or mental infirmity which prevents you from serving. You will likely be instructed to have your medical provider send written notice to the court for either a temporary or permanent excusal.
