Juror Postponement or Excusal


If unavailable on the date scheduled due to an extreme hardship, a juror may request one postponement by telephoning the Jury Office at (734) 222-3354 at least 2 weeks before the service date listed on the summons.  Generally, one postponement is granted without question.


If physically or mentally unable to carry out the functions of a juror, the juror must provide a signed doctor statement declaring the nature and duration of the condition causing the juror to be excused from jury duty. Once received by the Court via fax (734) 222-3084 or mail it will be sent to the Judge for final determination.  Generally, exemptions are not granted.

If special accommodations are required to assist a juror in serving, please contact the Jury Office with an explanation of the accommodations which would be necessary, and notify the Court 2 weeks before the service date on the summons so that arrangements can be made.
