How are jurors selected for jury duty and how do I get off of jury duty?
There are two types of people – those who want the experience of being picked to serve on a jury and those who do not. Only the judge can release someone from jury duty – usually for medical reasons or family obligations, emergencies, etc. The DAG cannot get you off of jury duty. If you have any issue with being called for jury duty, please contact the appropriate clerk so that he or she may pass your concern along to the judge for his decision. Jury panel lists are pulled from the Tennessee Department of Safety driver’s license records NOT BY VOTER REGISTRATION – this is an urban legend so please do not let the possibility of jury service deter you from registering to vote!
