What if I don’t show up for jury duty?
You will receive a fail to appear warning letter stating you have failed to appear on a particular date. This letter will give you a number to call to resolve the situation. If you fail to respond to the failure to appear letter, you will be sent a show cause hearing date. In this case, you will be expected to explain to the Chief Judge. If you fail to appear for the show cause hearing, a bench warrant will be issued for your arrest.
