What may jurors wear to jury service?

The walking distance is a couple of blocks, so jurors are specifically encouraged to wear comfortable shoes. Jurors should dress comfortably, but appropriately for a courthouse. The temperature in the courtrooms can be unpredictable, you are encouraged to layer your clothing. In addition, jurors will have to walk to the courtrooms from the Jury Assembly Room. Court proceedings are conducted with dignity and respect. Your dress should be suitable for the occasion. Unsuitable clothing items are not permitted. 

Unsuitable Clothing Items

  • Shorts
  • Mini skirts
  • Tank tops
  • Halters
  • Flip-flops

If you report to jury service wearing inappropriate attire, you will be required to return home to change to more suitable attire or you will be given a new report date and will have to return on that date.
