All jurors are to report to the Room 201 on the 2nd floor of the Moore County Courthouse, located in downtown Carthage. If you serve, you satisfy your obligation to the State and Moore County for two years.
Bring a book, needlework, crossword puzzles, or other materials to occupy your time. While efforts will be made by the Court to reduce delays in trial starts and to avoid long waiting periods for you, some waiting time should be anticipated while jurors are chosen to sit on a jury.
You should dress comfortably, but not too casually. Dress for Court as if you were going to work or to church. Many judges do not allow anyone to come to court wearing halter or tank tops, cut-off jeans, shorts, or shirts with offensive wording. Remember you will be acting as part of the Court while serving as jurors, so dress appropriately. Also, you might want to wear layered clothing since courtroom temperatures may vary considerably, requiring the removal or addition of a sweater or jacket.
In an emergency, you may be contacted through the Clerk of Superior Court's office, or at an emergency number given to you when you arrive at the Courthouse. The court staff will make certain that you get the message.
