Request for Disqualification/Excusal/Deferral
If you have a scheduling conflict and/or extreme hardship, you can request a postponement from your assigned service date to a date more convenient with your schedule. Your first postponement request will be granted upon demand. Additional requests, however, will be granted only if you can prove undue hardship. There are very few statutory reasons for being excused from jury duty. If you feel that you should be exempt or excused from your service obligation, you can submit the request to the Jury Duty Judge. To expedite your request to be excused for medical reasons, please have your healthcare provider complete the Medical Excuse Form and forward it to Jury Services. All requests must be mailed, emailed or submitted online no less than ten (10) days prior to the report date to:
