Jury Duty Information
Welcome to the Mohave County Superior Court jury information page.
Jury service lies at the heart of our American judicial system.
Service as a juror is the responsibility and obligation of all
qualified citizens, as well as an opportunity to contribute to our
system of justice and our communities. If you are selected to serve,
we hope you find your service to be challenging, interesting and
rewarding. The Clerk of Superior Court and the jury staff thank you
for your service. The following information is updated regularly to
provide you with the current status of trials.

(Please note: Court Staff will not call you asking for your Social Security Number or Date of Birth. Should you receive a call from someone claiming to be from the
Court asking for this information, please do not give this information out over the phone.)
If your scheduled trial has been cancelled, you do not need to appear. However, your name will go back into the jury pool and you will be notified with a new summons at a later date.
PUBLIC NOTICE: Jury Scam - Victims of the
Jury Scam get an e-mail containing a fake subpoena ordering recipients to
testify before a grand jury, complete with seemingly genuine details like your
name, a case number and court seal. However, the e-mails contain malware that
can destroy a computer. Another version of the scam involves a phone call in
which the caller claims to be a jury coordinator and intimidates victims into
revealing personal information. Please retain personal information as the
Mohave County Jury Clerk will not be requesting this type of sensitive data over
a phone call.

jurors for Jury Service.

Currently, jurors receive $12.00 per day and are reimbursed for the
mileage from their home at a rate of 44.5 cents per mile. Jury payroll is done every Friday.
- How many times may I be called to serve on a jury?
As a juror,
once you appear for a trial, regardless if you are chosen to serve on that panel,
your jury service has been completed for 2 years.
- How may I be excused from Jury Service?
Only the judge may excuse you from jury service. However,
1) On timely application to the court, you may be excused temporarily
from service as a juror if you have a mental or physical condition
that causes you to be incapable of performing jury service and this
condition is so verified by a medical statement from a physician who
is licensed pursuant to title 32 that explains the existing mental
or physical condition that renders you unfit for jury service. A
form that complies with this requirement is available at the courthouse,
on the Arizona Medical Board web site or by clicking on
2) A prospective juror who is at least seventy-five years of age may
submit a written statement to the court requesting they be excused
from service. They may request to be excused temporarily or permanently.
- How long will I have to serve as a juror?
The first step in Jury Service is the selection of jurors. This process
usually takes less than one day. The courts will call more people than necessary for
the purpose of jury selection. This is done to ensure that the courts have
an adequate number of jurors to choose from. If you are selected to serve
as a juror the judge will let you know how long he anticipates the trial to
last. In the justice and municipal courts, trials are usually completed
in one day.
