Scott County Juror Reporting Information
Jurors must keep in contact with us throughout their two-week term. You will need to check this website or call the jury message line (952) 496-8201 whenever you are directed to do so.
Your group number appears on the top right-hand side of your summons.
THIS INFORMATION IS FOR JURORS SUMMONED FOR THE TWO-WEEK TERM THAT BEGINS ON MONDAY, JANUARY 14, 2019.
No jurors need to report on Monday (we will be closed) nor on Tuesday morning. All jurors should check back at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, January 22nd, for further instructions.
Scott County has morning and afternoon court and there can be up to 20 jury trials scheduled on any given day. You will be asked to call in after 4:30 p.m. on most days and you will receive reporting information for the next days’ court calendar. There will be times when there is no afternoon court, but one of the cases from the morning’s session may end up going to trial. When this occurs, you would have to call back or check the website at 11:30 a.m. and if your group number is called, the report time would be 12:45 – 1:00. It is very important to tell your employer that you are currently on-call for jury duty as you may be asked to leave work in the middle of the day to report.
When you report for jury service, check in at the Scott County Conference Center at 205 W. 4th Ave., Shakopee, MN (across 4th Avenue from the courthouse). You may bring reading materials or something quiet to do as there may be long periods of waiting. This includes cell phones, tablets or laptops but they must be turned off and put away before entering the courtroom. There are no vending machines, so please bring whatever snacks or beverages you may need in closed containers. Some of the on-street parking has a two hour limit so please avoid those areas. There is Wi-Fi access at the Conference Center. There are security measures similar to airport screening before entering the courtoom so please do not bring any sharp objects with you; they may be confiscated. You should wear neat, comfortable clothes; however, shorts are not acceptable.
If you have questions or concerns that are not addressed here, please contact Scott County Court Administration at (952) 496-8200, select the prompts for Court Admininstration, Jury Division.
Thank you for your service!
