Jury service in Cumberland County operates on a daily reporting plan which means that a new group of jurors are summoned each day of the week. If selected to serve on a jury, a juror will serve for the duration of that trial. Most trials last several days. If a trial will take longer than several days, the Presiding Judge will discuss the expected length of the trial with the potential jurors.
If a person is not selected for a trial and the Presiding Judge excuses them, then their jury responsibilities will be over for a two year period. Any juror who serves on a trial or anyone who reports for jury duty and is not selected and is excused by the Presiding Judge will be ineligible for jury duty for a two year period.
