Please be aware that citizens are being targeted by a juror phishing email that asks recipients to provide personal identifiers (SSN, DOB, mother’s maiden name, etc.) on an attached PDF form and emailed back to the originator.  Please do not respond to the email. Our Court will not request that  your personal identification information be sent directly in an email response. Our request for you to complete a qualification questionnaire will be initiated by formal written correspondence and we will provide instructions for our juror participants to be authenticated over a secure connection.
