Jury service sits at the cornerstone of the American Judicial System. Serve as a Juror is a rewarding experience because jurors perform a unique role in the American System of Justice.

While the judge looks at the rule of law, the eligible jurors serve to decide the facts within the criminal and civil justice system. All Santa Cruz County residents are obligated by state law to serve as a juror unless excused. If you are selected to serve, we hope you find your service to be rewarding.

Santa Cruz County Superior Court and the Jury Commissioner thank you for serving your community.

NEW: Recent increase in juror compensation eligibility for jurors summoned and selected to serve.
