THIS LIST IS FOR THE JURY SELECTION DATE ON APRIL 26, 2021
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION CAREFULLY
In order to follow social distancing guidelines, the Court will be limiting the number of potential jurors that it brings in at the same time by staggering arrival times. The Summons to Jury Duty you received indicates that you are to arrive for jury selection at 9:00 a.m. This is not correct.
There are trials scheduled for the time in which you were summoned to serve as a juror. All jurors were given a notice with their juror number on it (located on the right-hand side of your Summons to Jury Duty). Unless you have been previously excused by Court Administration, please review the following list for your juror number and time at which you are to report on Monday, April 23, 2021. Please report to Courtroom Number 1 on the 2nd floor of the Clarion County Courthouse at your designated time.
If you have any questions, please call (814) 226-9351 on Monday morning after 8:00 a.m. and we will assist you. If you have been selected as a juror, it is recommended to read the Handbook for Jurors.
This Jury Selection information will be updated after 6:00 PM on Friday, April 23, 2021.
