|Douglas County Courthouse|
IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION:
If you received a summons for jury duty it is because your name was selected at random through lists provided by voters registration, Colorado driver's license, Colorado ID, or the Department of Revenue. You must be prepared to stay until 5:00p.m. on your appearance date. If you are chosen as a juror, the trial generally starts as soon as the jurors are selected; in most cases selection is completed on the first day. The average trial in Colorado is two days for county court and three to four days for district court. Complete your juror questionnaire before you arrive & bring your entire summons with you. You will appear at 4000 Justice Way, Ste. 2026, Castle Rock, CO 80109 and the driving directions are on the back of your summons.
Anyone in a uniformed position please DO NOT WEAR YOUR UNIFORM to jury duty. Do NOT wear any PERFUME/AFTERSHAVE as some people are highly allergic.
Upon entering the Douglas County Justice Center you must go through a security scanner. Please leave mace, weapons, knitting/crochet needles, contraband, finger nail files/clippers and as much metal as possible at home or in your car as you will be required to empty all of your pockets. The wait line to be scanned may be lengthy so please plan accordingly (the doors open at 7:30am). Complete your juror questionnaire before you arrive & bring your entire summons with you.
Coffee & tea are provided. Vending machines with cold drinks & snacks are available. You may leave the building for your lunch break.
