Dakota County Juror Reporting Information

Jurors must keep in contact with us throughout their term.  You will need to check this website or call the jury message line, (651) 438-8181, whenever you are directed to do so.  

Follow the directions for your group number.  Your group number appears on the top right-hand side of your summons.  
 
This message is for all Jurors with terms beginning on March 23, 2020; April 6, 2020; and April 20, 2020:

As ordered by the Minnesota Supreme Court in response to the current pandemic, there will be no jury trials prior to April 22, 2020.  If you have been summoned for jury service during this time, you are not required to report right now.  If your service is needed, you will receive written notice when trials start again.  You must still complete your Juror Questionnaire according to the instructions on your summons. We thank you in advance for completing your Questionnaire online if you are able.

When you report for jury service, come to the Jury Assembly Room on the lower level of the Judicial Center in Hastings.  We are the center building of the U-shaped complex numbered 1560.  There are security measures similar to airport screening so please allow time for this procedure.  Do not bring any sharp objects with you as they may be confiscated.  This includes metal silverware.  We do not have a cafeteria in the courthouse.  There is a refrigerator and microwave available for your use, along with plastic utensils.  You should wear neat, comfortable clothes; however, shorts are not acceptable.  Wireless internet access is also available.

Thank you for your service!
