Failure to Appear
***Because of COVID-19 public health concerns, the Florida Supreme Court’s Chief Justice issued an order suspending all jury trials in Florida’s court system through May 29, 2020.
Those with a current summons for jury duty are not required to go to court as all jury trials during this time frame are postponed.***
In accordance with Florida Statute 40.23(3), any person who is duly summoned to attend as a juror in any court and who fails to attend without any sufficient excuse shall pay a fine not to exceed $100, which fine shall be imposed by the court to which the juror was summoned, and, in addition, such failure may be considered a contempt of court.
