What does it mean when I receive a letter marked "Jury Summons" for the Superior Court of Paulding County?
This means that you have been randomly selected by a computer to be a prospective Grand Jury or trial jury member in the Superior Court. It means that you have been selected to participate in one of a citizen's most sacred privileges and provides you with an opportunity to do a patriotic duty. Jury service also gives you the opportunity to see first-hand how the courts in your community function.

You should read both the summons, and the letter accompanying the summons, very carefully and completely to make sure that you understand exactly when and where you are to report for jury service as well other matters which are important to you and to the Courts.

Georgia law provides that you must respond to a summons for jury duty and report, if not excused earlier, or face penalties, including the payment of a fine of up to $300. It is very important to follow all instructions in the letter and summons carefully and completely. If your summons says to call a particular phone number the day you are to report for jury duty, you should do so. Failure to do so may cause you unnecessary time and expense which could have been avoided had you followed the instructions.
