Juror Alert

The Pierce County Superior Court sincerely appreciates all who take the time to fulfill their jury duty responsibilities. Trial by jury is a fundamental constitutional right.  Consequently, without jurors, justice is denied.  In times of crisis it is as critical as ever that the justice system not fail its citizens. Even with the concerns with the Covid 19 virus jury trials must go forward.

Rest assured that we do not ask our jurors to be submitted to preventable health risks. The Pierce County Superior Court will take every responsible action to keep our jurors safe. We are following the Tacoma- Pierce County Health Department guidelines and best practices for COVID-19.
