This information applies to jury service in the Circuit Court of Lewis County, Tennessee. You may receive a jury summons in the mail from the court indicating that you are being called to serve as a prospective juror. This means that your name was drawn from the current list of licensed drivers in the county. All names are selected at random from this source. At all stages of selection, the Clerk must insure that the selection process represents a random cross-section of qualified persons residing within the county. As a necessary part of this requirement, no person or persons can be selectively included or excluded from the list of qualified jurors.
The Tennessee Code spells out the minimum requirements for a person competent to act as a juror. A person is eligible for jury service if he or she is a citizen of the United States, has been a resident of Lewis County for at least 12 months, has not served as a juror during the previous twenty-four (24) months, and has not been convicted of a perjury or a felony.
Jurors will only be excused if serving will cause an undue or extreme physical or financial hardship. Such a hardship may be present if the juror has a mental or physical condition, which causes the juror to be incapable of performing jury service.
