Is it possible that I might report for jury duty but never get to sit on a jury?
Unfortunately yes. Although there is a slight chance that you will never get called for a case, there is a possibility that you will not be seated as a sworn juror. It is our hope that every juror will at least have the opportunity to go through the jury selection process. Also, you may experience a situation where you are called to sit as a prospective juror and the case resolves just moments before the trial begins. If this should happen to you, please do not feel as if your time has been wasted. Your presence alone encourages resolution.
