Clay County Clerk
of the Circuit Court

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.
