About Jury Duty


Jury duty is an essential element of our judicial system in America. Trial by jury is provided as a constitutional right. Jury duty is one of the privileges of citizenship in the United States. By state law, jurors are selected at random from a Master List generated in Olympia, Washington.

The Jury Office is responsible for the management of juror services for the Superior Court, including qualifying and processing of hundreds of persons weekly for juries throughout Spokane County, Washington. The Jury Office responds to judges' requests for jury panels, as well as the coordination and direction of jurors to courtrooms. In addition, the Jury Office updates records, disburses juror fees, provides an orientation for new jurors, responds to telephone inquiries, reschedules juror's term, excuses disqualified jurors, and oversees the general comfort of jurors.

For additional information on the jury duty process, please refer to the Juror Information page or the FAQs page, or contact the Jury Coordinator.
