Jury Duty Instructions & Information
Superior Court jurors are selected from a compiled list of names from Cochise County voter registration and Motor Vehicle Division. If you are qualified to serve as a trial juror, you will be summoned with not less than ten days notice of the date, time, and place to report. Do not report until summoned. You are on call for a six-month period or until you served on a trial during this period. An average trial lasts from two to five days.
- Please check your summons for the DIVISION and DATE you were called to appear. Cancelled Jurors will receive another summons letter in the mail whenever their presence is again required.
- Before your Reporting Date, please call 520-432-8577 or toll-free 888-212-7072 (Northern Cochise County), after 5:30 pm the evening before your report date up to 7:30 am the next morning. A recording will indicate final instructions as to whether you should appear, or if your presence is not required due to a postponement or cancellation.
- For Road Condition Alerts call 888-411-7623. Speak "roads" and "Highway 80" for the road condition report.
- Oftentimes, cases are settled prior to the trial date, so please call to see if you are required to appear.
- If you report after jury service has been canceled, you will not be paid. It is your responsibility to call the evening before your reporting day.
- Failure to report to Court as instructed may result in your being brought before the Judge on Contempt of Court charges.
- Please do not bring any children under the age of 18 to court.
- Wireless service is available in the Jury Assembly Area.
If for an important reason you will be unavailable for a certain block of time during your term of service, please indicate the days by sending us a letter to the address below or by email. Trips/appointments that can be rescheduled are not valid excuses uses for missing jury duty. However, if arrangements have already been made you may request a postponement by email or mail. Only two postponements can be granted during your term of service. Please include your name, the date, the Division, and your badge number in your email to the Clerk of Court or letter to:
