On behalf of the Bergen County Superior Court, I would like to welcome you. Everyone connected with the Court system recognizes that when we ask our citizens to report for jury service it represents a personal inconvenience to each and every one of you. However, jury service is an important duty of citizenship and fundamental to our entire system of justice. The Courts cannot function without members of the public offering their time to serve as jurors. We value your service as a juror and know that you will find your experience with the courts to be rewarding.
Thank you for serving.
Note: This same reporting message is also available by calling 201-527-2299. If the reporting message is not available both here and on the telephone recording, you must report to the courthouse at 8:15 AM.
Failure to Report
Jurors who fail to report as summoned are subject to penalties, including fines and imprisonment. Call the jury office at 201-527-2290 if you have questions about your jury service.
Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) Policy
Please advise the Jury Manager if you require an accommodation in order to serve. The TTY Number is: 201-527-2281.
Jurors must wear clothing appropriate for an appearance in court. Shorts, T-shirts, or clothing containing statements or offensive symbols are not permitted. In addition, work uniforms, including police uniforms, should not be worn.
If You Are Selected As A Juror
Other Factors Relating to Your Juror Service
