I've been called for jury duty. What does this mean?

You have received your jury summons, which states that you have been selected by law to act as an officer of this court by serving as a juror. As citizens of South Carolina, and of the United States, each of us has an obligation to make a contribution to the American system of justice. You are now being called upon to participate in one of the cornerstones of the judicial process, a trial by jury. The mandate of justice for all can only be achieved through the combined efforts of judges, lawyers and citizens serving as jurors. Your role as juror, as the "judge" of facts, will require you to carry out your duties attentively, intelligently and fairly. Remember, your vote as a juror is usually final.

All jurors are required to appear on the Trial date, at a designated time.  Jurors are selected at that time for the trial on that day. 

If you have received a summons to appear for jury duty on a specific day, please mail the enclosed copy back with your signature and contact information within two days. If you do not hear from the Court prior to the Court date, you are expected to appear.


If you are not able to participate in jury duty, please mail the enclosed copy back with supporting documentation (i.e., doctor note, airline reservations, etc.) stating you wish to be excused and the reason for your request. You will be notified by the Court if your request to be excused has been accepted. If you do not hear from the Court about being excused, you are expected to appear for jury duty.
