Dear Jury Panel Member:

Your juror registration form has been reviewed and shows that you are qualified to serve as a juror. You have been assigned to Austin Municipal Court. It is your legal duty to report as directed and on time. Failure to report may result in a special appearance before a judge and a substantial fine as well as being rescheduled for jury duty. If an emergency arises that prevents you from reporting, please call (512) 974-4800 or email: [email protected]  as soon as possible. Any other excuses can be presented to the judge at the scheduled time.

Do not schedule any additional activities starting on or a day after the report date. Most trials at Municipal Court conclude in one day or less. The conflict dates you submitted were accommodated and this trial assignment was chosen outside of the dates indicated.
