As an elected court official and records keeper, the District Clerk offers the highest level of public assistance and serves as an "ambassador" of the judicial system. The clerk's office is usually the first point of contact with the general public for procedural information about the court process, copies of court records, jury service, passport information and related information of other government offices.

The District Clerk's duties are extensive and interface with each phase of the judicial process. The clerk operates within the realm of procedure while attorneys and judges operate within the realm of application, direction and enforcement. Efficient management and administration of all functions of the clerk's office are necessary to insure the timely and accurate progression of cases through the court system.

Petit Jury Information

Jurors are selected electronically at random from a list compiled by the Secretary of State's Office, utilizing a list of voter registrations and a list of driver's license registrations from this County. As a juror, you must be fair and impartial. Your actions and decisions are the foundation of our judicial system. Remember that it is an honor and a privilege to be summoned or to serve as a juror.

Please read your summons carefully. The exemptions and disqualifications for petit jury service are stated on the summons. If any disqualification applies to you, you cannot serve. You must circle the disqualification and return the card to the District Clerk. If any exemption applies to you, you do not have to claim it and you may serve. If you claim an exemption or disqualification, please do so immediately upon receipt of your summons. Please circle the appropriate number, then sign and date the summons card and return it (the whole card) to the District Clerk.

Grand Jury Information

If you receive a summons for Grand Jury duty and feel that you cannot serve, please contact the 36th District Court Judge's office at 361-364-9310 for more information. The Judge is the only person who can excuse you from Grand Jury service prior to the summons date.
