Jury Trials

District Court Jury panels are drawn twice a year using AgileJury, a statewide jury management system. The names are randomly drawn from Park County's registered voters and licensed drivers. If your name is drawn and you need to be excused for any reason during the term, you will need to present your written request to the Judge for consideration. You may also qualify to be exempt from jury duty. Wyoming Statues §1-11-103 and 104 provide information regarding exemption and excusals from jury duty. Jurors must appear at trials unless notified and/or excused by the Judge in advance.

Jurors receive $30.00 for each full or part day of actual attendance. Mileage is reimbursed to those jurors whose roundtrip travel to the courthouse in Cody exceeds ten (10) miles.

Jurors are asked to give their undivided attention to the jury selection process.  Cell phones, recording, or other electronic devices should not be brought into the courtroom.  Jurors are asked to remain seated until everyone in the room is allowed to leave.  Morning, lunch, and afternoon breaks are given. 

Visitors are welcome to observe most jury trials.  Anyone visiting the courtroom should be respectful.  There is not a required dress code, but appropriate attire should be worn.  Talking should not occur among spectators or jurors unless absolutely necessary.
