From the Humboldt County Superior Court:
The Humboldt County Superior Court is currently facing a shortage of prospective jurors like we have never seen before. The failure of summoned jurors to appear at court for Jury Duty is causing a barrier to justice for citizens who are facing criminal charges as well as those attempting to seek civil justice in our courts.
Jury Service is one of the most important ways to participate in local government while assisting your fellow citizens in obtaining justice. We realize that Jury Service can impact your daily life; however, we are imploring all summoned jurors to appear at the requested time and fulfill their civic duty.
