SCAM INFORMATION WARNING

 

The Yolo County Superior Court has learned of a scam in which identity thieves are calling potential jurors and threatening them for failing to report for jury service.  The thieves then ask for confidential information.  Court employees NEVER call local citizens and ask for Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, or other sensitive information.  Citizens should not give out such information over the phone to anyone claiming to be with the judicial system

 

Although the Court does not know of any such activity in Yolo County, we have received reports that this scam occurred in other California counties and in other states as well.  If you receive such a telephone call, please contact the Jury Services Office immediately at (530) 406-6828.

COURTROOM ATTIRE
 

We suggest you wear comfortable clothing that fits with the importance and dignity of the courtroom (Rule 4.3 of the Local Rules of Court).  While serving jury duty, the Court request that you dress in business casual attire.  Shorts, tank tops, bare midriffs, beach shoes, or similar dress is not appropriate for the courtroom.  We suggest that jurors dress in layers as the temperature of the jury assembly room and courtrooms can be unpredictable.  All hats and sunglasses must be removed prior to entering the courtroom and remain off while inside the courtroom.

 

 

 

COURTROOM MEDIA POLICY
 

Rule 4.5 of the Local Rules of Court and Rule 1.150 of the California Rules of Court prohibit photographing, videotaping, televising, or otherwise recording any court proceeding.  In addition, Rule 4.6 of the Local Rules of Court and Rule 1.150 of the California Rules of Court state that you may not use computers, cellular phones, cameras, IPods, PDAs, tape recorders, or other electronic devices in the courtroom.  The court requires all electronic equipment be shut off completely prior to entering the courtroom and remain off while you are inside the courtroom. 

  

JURY ASSEMBLY ROOM

 

While the Local Rules of Court prohibits using all electronic devices in the courtroom, the court does permit use of this equipment in the Jury Assembly Room located at 725 Court Street, Room 301.  In addition, the court offers Wi-Fi service for our jurors in the Jury Assembly Room.  The Jury Assembly Room is strictly reserved for our jurors while serving jury duty.

SPECIAL ACCOMODATIONS
 

If you are disabled or need special assistance, reasonable accommodations are available so that you can serve.  Reasonable accommodations include but are not limited to wheelchair access, readers, assistive listening devices, sign language interpreters, or real-time captioning.  Please call the Jury Services Office at least two weeks before your date of service at (530) 406-6828 to allow the court time to make arrangements once you receive a jury summons.  In most instances, we will postpone your jury service date to allow the court time to make arrangements to meet your needs.
