NJ Courts to Send Texts, Emails to Jurors

New Jersey courts are now sending text and email messages to jurors to remind them of their summons date, and to advise petit jurors whether they have to report to court the next day.

Jurors can still check for information at njcourts.com or call the jury reporting number to find out if they have to be at the courthouse the following day, but if they opt in, information will be sent by text and email messages.

“We recognize that jurors make sacrifices to perform a vital public service,” said State Supreme Court Justice Stuart Rabner. “Because so many jurors today rely on electronic communication, we want to meet their expectations and update them about jury service in the most convenient way possible.”

Information on how to sign up to receive text messages is now included when jurors respond to their summons online.
