Welcome To Jury Service

On behalf of the United States District Court for the Western District of North Carolina, I am pleased to welcome you to our court for jury service.

We know that jury service places a burden on you and your busy lives. Serving as a juror is an important civic duty, as well as a privilege and responsibility. Those who serve as jurors have an opportunity to see the courts in action and to actively participate in a fundamental democratic process.

We want your experience with us to be positive.  You will be treated with dignity and respect. We extend our sincere appreciation to you for participating, and trust that you will find your experience rewarding.

By serving jury duty you are participating in the administration of justice. There is no more valuable service that a citizen can perform in support of our democratic government than the good faith performance of jury duty.

Thank you in advance for your service.

Katherine Hord Simon, Clerk
U.S. District Court
Western District of N.C.
