67th District Court Bailiffs
My blue summons says to report at 9:30 on Thursdays only - don't I have to call ahead?
The 67th District Court does not require you to call ahead. You simply report for jury duty on the two Thursday's listed on your blue summons. The Circuit Court requires you to call to see if you must report for jury duty.
