Jury Duty Information

Jury Summons
If you have received a summons to appear for jury duty on a specific day, please call 406-552-6177 and leave a message indicating that you have received the summons.

Participation
If you are not able to participate in jury duty, please mail or fax a written juror excusal request form with supporting documentation (i.e., doctor note, airline reservations, etc.) stating you wish to be excused and the reason for your request. Requests for excusal will not be considered unless submitted on the proper form, available from court clerks. Please make sure that you have been summoned for jury duty at Missoula Municipal Court rather than Justice or District Court before sending an excusal request form. Please send requests to:

Municipal Court - Jury Duty
Attn: Karen
435 Ryman St.
Missoula, MT 59802
Fx: (406) 327-2129

You will be notified by the court if your excusal has been accepted. If you do not hear from the court regarding your excusal, you are expected to show for jury duty.

Trial Information
To verify whether a trial is still going or not please call our jury line at 406-552-6170.  Call after 5 p.m. the day before the trial. You may press 1 when the message starts.  

Parking
If you are serving as a juror for the day, you may park in the parking garage at 128 W Main St., and the court will validate your parking stub for you. You are responsible for your parking costs at any other location.
