i-Juror Information Website
Trial by jury is a fundamental part of the American system of justice, and is a right guaranteed under the Constitution of the United States. To preserve this right it is essential that the court establish and maintain a well-functioning system for the selection and utilization of jurors.
The 42nd Judicial District Court's normal term of service is five days, Monday through Friday. The central jury pool serves both civil and criminal divisions of court.
The citizens of the Parish of DeSoto can take pride in having one of the most modern jury systems operating in Louisiana. When you have completed your service as a juror, it is hoped you will have a higher opinion of the privilege enjoyed by the free citizens of our country to participate in the administration of justice. In serving as a juror, you know that you have discharged a serious responsibility in a conscientious manner.
"Citizens of the United States have enjoyed for over 200 years the right to have their cases decided by a jury of their peers. Jury service is not merely your responsibility - it is also a cherished right."
