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 jurors summoned for the two-week term beginning on Tuesday, January 16.

Group numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 are to report for jury service on Tuesday, January 16, at 9:00 a.m.

Groups numbers 6, 7, and 8 are to check this website or call the recorded message line Tuesday, January 16, at 11:00 a.m. and be prepared for the possibility of needing to report at 12:30 p.m., one and one-half hours later.

If your group number is not included in the above listed groups, please check this website or call the recorded message line on Tuesday, January 16, after 5:00 p.m. for a new message.

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!
