Jury Service

 

We are conducting jury trials starting on July 8, 2020.  Please call (253) 835-3001 after 5:00 pm the day before your jury service is required to verify that you need to appear. 

Federal Way Municipal Court has taken efforts to protect your health and safety.  You will be required to wear a mask and we have made sure that social distancing is followed.  Please do not report for jury service if you are ill, if you have a fever, or if you are in an at-risk category. 

Thank you for your vital service to our court and community as jurors.

 

Jury duty is one of the more important responsibilities we have as citizens.  The right to trial by jury is guaranteed in our federal and state constitutions for a reason; it is essential that our criminal and civil disputes be decided by juries of fellow citizens.  Thomas Jefferson said, “I consider trial by jury as the only anchor yet imagined by man by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution."  “Government of the people, by the people, and for the people” is embodied through jury service so thank you in advance for participating in this noble institution.
