Stand By Jury Assignment


To determine if you are needed as a juror you must call (512) 854-6607 between 3:00 and 5:00 P.M. on the Friday before the week you were assigned. You do not need to report to the courthouse unless instructed to do so once you have called the recording. The 9:00 A.M. report time is only an anticipated report time so please follow the instructions on the recording.

Panel: Reserve Panel C,
Building: Main Courthouse, 1000 Guadalupe Street, 2nd Floor
Telephone: (512) 854-6607

Dear Juror:

Your summons response has been reviewed and you are now qualified to serve as a juror and have been assigned to a reserve panel. Reserve panels comprise reserve jurors and are used only as needed.

Please note the following:

IMPORTANT: BEFORE REPORTING, PLEASE CALL (512) 854-6607 BETWEEN 3:00 P.M. AND 5:00 P.M.ON THE FRIDAY BEFORE YOUR REPORT DATE TO CONFIRM WHEN AND WHERE TO APPEAR. When you call you will hear a recorded message that will give you an exact time and day to report for jury selection. Your day to report for jury selection will be a day between Tuesday and Friday. If you are selected as a juror to hear a case the trial will begin immediately after jury selection and may last more than one day. Call first to confirm the Court, the date, and the time you are to appear and you may avoid an unnecessary trip to the Courthouse. When you call you will be given clear and detailed instructions concerning where, when, and whether you are to report.

WE ARE UNABLE TO CHANGE OR RESCHEDULE THIS ASSIGNMENT. You are expected to report as directed above. If a health emergency arises that prevents you from reporting please call (512) 854-9669 as soon as possible.

UNFORTUNATELY, THERE IS NO RESERVED PARKING FOR JURORS AT THIS COURTHOUSE. We encourage you to use Capital Metro for transportation. You can contact Capital Metro at 474-1200 or for more information. You may also find the Google Transit search engine useful. You are welcome to make other transportation arrangements as best fit your needs. Allow sufficient time for the trip to the courthouse. If you are selected as one of the jurors to serve on the jury trial, you will be provided with a parking permit from the court beginning the second day of service.

EXPECT TO GO THROUGH SECURITY SCREENING when you report. The security system is similar to that found at an airport. We recommend you leave behind pocketknives or any other sharp or pointed objects.

YOU HAVE NOT YET BEEN SELECTED TO BE A JUROR. You are reporting for jury selection. If you are concerned that serving as a juror will cause you economic hardship, you will have the opportunity to bring this issue to the attention of the judge.

Most importantly, THANK YOU for performing this essential service for our community.
