Information for Jurors

Welcome to King County Superior Court, thank you for your willingness to serve!

Notice!  Superior Court has received reports of residents receiving telephone calls from individuals who claim to be law enforcement officers or court staff and accuse the residents of failure to respond to a jury summons.  These callers often demand immediate payment of a fine to avoid issuance of an arrest warrant.  Please be assured that the staff of King County Superior Court will NEVER ask past or prospective jurors for financial details such as credit card numbers, bank account numbers, or Social Security numbers and will NEVER demand the payment of a fine.  If you receive such a telephone call you should contact law enforcement immediately.

Spam Alert!  A fraudulent email regarding courts is being widely distributed around the U.S.  Learn how to protect yourself HERE.
