Jury Management

If you or someone in your immediate family has a fever and flu like symptoms on the day you are to serve, please contact the Jury Clerk at 724-228-6974 to be rescheduled.

Notice to Jurors:

If you have been summoned, please know that the Court of Common Pleas is following all applicable Center for Disease Control and the Pennsylvania Department of Health ​guidelines to ensure the safety of all jurors who are to report for service.  These safety measures include:

·         Thermal temperature checks and simple screening questions. No one with a confirmed fever over 100° F will be permitted entrance.

·         We are practicing social distancing in all areas of the Courthouse, including the jury lounge, courtrooms, using elevators, and moving around the facility.

·         There are hand sanitizing and wipe stations located throughout the Courthouse.

·         Wearing a mask or face covering is required when in the judicial facility. Please bring your own if you have one.

·         We offer a shuttle from the Crossroads parking garage to the Courthouse. You can inquire about this service with the Jury Clerk prior to reporting for your jury service.

·         Staff are instructed to stay home if they exhibit any COVID-19 symptoms.

·         While we understand the public concerns during this unprecedented time, the Court also has a duty to protect the rights of all citizens of the Commonwealth, which includes the right to a fair and impartial trial by jury. Jurors play an essential role in securing that right. If you have any questions, please contact the Jury Clerk at 724-228-6974 or email at jury.clerk@washingtoncourts.us. 

Each month prospective jurors are summoned at the direction of the President Judge and the Court Administrator. Jurors are summoned for regular and special trial terms for both civil and criminal cases.
