Recorded Juror Information Line:
(5:15 pm – 8:00 AM)
The Hernando County clerk’s office has a recorded juror information line to inform jurors when or if their services will be required each day they are on call for the week specified on the summons.
Cases frequently settle out of court before their trial date. Please call the juror information line at 352-754-4203 after 5:15 pm the day before, or the weekend before your initial report date. This number will inform you by recorded message whether your juror number is required to report.
If your juror number is not required to report the first day of the trial week, you must call in each evening for the entire week until you hear that jurors have been released for the week. You may also visit one of the links below to obtain important juror reporting instructions.
If you are unable to view the juror reporting instructions online and/or if the telephone recording is not operational, report for jury service as directed by your summons.
PLEASE BRING YOUR SUMMONS WHEN YOU REPORT FOR SERVICE with the top portion filled out checking the compensation that applies to you, signature, and phone number.
Jurors are to report to Hernando County Government Center room 164 located at 20 N Main St, Brooksville Florida
