Please be assured staff of Snohomish County Superior Court or the Clerk’s office will NEVER ask past or prospective jurors for financial data such as credit card numbers, bank account numbers, or Social Security numbers and will NEVER demand the payment of a fine.

Juror Responsibilities

Your job as a juror is to listen to all the evidence at trial, then "decide the facts." The judge’s job is to decide the law and make decisions on legal issues that come up during the trial. Everyone must do their job well to make our system of trial by jury work.

Jury trials have been an important part of the American legal system for over two centuries. They are an integral part of the law, which protects the fundamental rights of all citizens. Service as a juror is both a privilege and a duty and, when conscientiously performed, is a mark of good citizenship. Jurors do not need any special skills or legal knowledge, but like any other judge you need to be able to set aside personal feelings and biases and be willing to keep an open mind before making a decision. A fair and impartial trial and the rendition of a just verdict depends upon the combined efforts of the jurors, the judge, and the lawyers.

Once selected to serve on a trial, the Court is counting on each juror to be there every day until a verdict is reached and the judge releases you. Once you are assigned to a courtroom you must not discuss the case with anyone. You must not research the laws, history of the case, blog, or post on any form of social media - as doing so could lead to a mistrial.
