Juror Duty

Juror Duty for May 2021

Thanks to all the jurors who participated in the April jury pool. 

After May 12th, we will update the reporting instructions for the May Jury Week (May 17 - 21).

Jury trials are held in person rather than by virtual hearing.  Case participants including jurors will report to the Kirkland Municipal Court building on the date summonsed.  

Prospective jurors, please review the Juror Duty Video before your scheduled appearance. 

Please call the juror information line (425) 587-3181, the night before you are scheduled to serve, to confirm the status of the trial and your service as a juror.

As always, thank you for your willingness to serve as a juror.  

John R. Olson, Presiding Judge

Kirkland Municipal Court would like to alert our residents to jury duty scams that are becoming more prevalent across the country and around Washington.   We greatly value our citizens willing to serve on jury duty and are very concerned that you might become victims of a scam artist out to take your money, and using the name of the court to do so. Please be aware that citizens in several Washington Counties as well as around the country have lost large sums of money.  Here is how it usually happens:  an individual calls or e-mails and claims that you have missed jury duty.  They indicate, as a result, a warrant has been issued for your arrest and/or that the Sheriff is en route to arrest you, and demand payment, a credit card number, or a social security number for failure to appear for jury duty.  Employees of Kirkland Municipal Court will never ask for payment over the phone or by e-mail.  Court officials will also never ask for you to purchase a pre-paid card, provide cash or a check to pay for failure to appear for jury duty. Never give out personal information by phone or e-mail.  Please report any suspicious activity of this kind to your local law enforcement agency.   If you have questions about jury duty or a court appearance, please call Kirkland Municipal Court at 425-587-3160.
