Jury service is a civic duty that every eligible adult has. This service to your community is the most direct, hands-on involvement in government most citizens will experience.
If you honestly cannot serve, the law provides several undue hardship categories that can allow for an excuse for a summoned juror for up to one year. Email Juror Response or fax to 231-332-4049 the reason for your excuse. You may have to appear in court on the date on your summons in order to explain to the judge the reason for your excuse.
