Dear Juror,

Due to an error in printing December summons, the paperwork mailed shows information for the Salt Lake County Justice Court. The Court has mailed new summons with correct information on being summoned for jury duty for the Salt Lake City Justice Court. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

Sincerely,

SLC Justice Court Jury Coordinator

It is imperative that you notify your employer(s) or instructor(s) that you are “on call” for jury service.

If you do not come to the courthouse as instructed, the court could hold you in contempt and impose a fine.
