Jury Service

You have been summoned for jury service for the next term of court. Terms of court last for approximately two months. However, this does not mean that you will have to physically report to the courthouse each day of the term. When you receive your jury summons, you will be assigned a juror number. If you have received a summons for this term, it is your responsibility to:

• Call the jury information hotline daily (24 hour message). The hotline number is (757) 678-5876.

• Unless instructed otherwise, you shall report for service at the Northampton County Circuit Court, 5229 The Hornes, Eastville, VA at 9:00 AM.

• Proper attire is required. You will not be permitted to wear t-shirts, tank tops, muscle shirts, flip-flops, shower shoes, shorts, pajamas, torn or tattered jeans or soiled field clothing.

• You will be compensated $30.00 for each day that you report for jury service. You will receive said compensation approximately 2 weeks after the end of the term.

• Cell phones, pagers and other electronic devices are not allowed in the Courthouse.

• Request for excuses from jury service must be submitted in writing to Traci L. Johnson, Clerk, P.O. Box 36, Eastville, VA 23347 no later than five days prior to the trial.
