Juror Service Center

COVID-19 related update

Due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, no decision has been made as to whether trials will occur during the May 2020 trial term.  We are also not addressing letters regarding excusals or deferrals at this time.  Please continue to check this webpage.  A final decision regarding the May trial term will be posted prior to the May trial term. 

 Thank you.

Our Mission


To provide the Court of Common Pleas of Westmoreland County, in an ethical, efficient, and cost-effective manner, a pool of qualified jurors diverse in age, ethnic background, gender and life experience. 

If you have been summoned to serve:


Step 1:

Submit Juror Questionnaire On-line (Required)

Step 2

: View Rules for Excusals & Postponements (Optional, after completion of Step 1) 

Step 3:

  Check Your Juror Status (Required) after 5:00 pm the work day before service date


Notification advising jurors whether they have to report for service based on juror number (printed on the summons) is accessible three ways: 

 

  1. By recorded phone message at (724) 838-7000
  2. Website notification 
  3. Sign up for text notification when submitting questionnaire (Step 1)
If the notification indicates you do not have to report for jury service, then you are excused and have fulfilled your jury service obligation for the year.
