Only if that's the court that's stated on your jury summons.

Relax.

You can't be fined without due process taking place, and the only proof that the court has that you received the summons is if you tell them so.

The county doesn't have the money to initiate and follow through on a judicial action for everybody who, for whatever reason, does not respond to their jury summons.

Move on, and next time keep your summons in a safe place.

(Disclaimer - Harrier is not a lawyer, and the above should not be considered as giving legal advice).
THIS IS LEGALLY ERRONEOUS ADVICE. Once the item is sent to your proper address in the US Mail, there is a rebuttable presumption that it reached that address within about three mailing days.

THE GOVERNMENT DOES NOT NEED TO PROVE THAT THE LETTER ACTUALLY REACHED YOU SPECIFICALLY. NOR ARE RELIEVED OF ANY OBLIGATION IF SOMEONE ELSE AT YOUR ADDRESS THREW AWAY OR MISPLACED THE LETTER.

PROBABLY YOU WILL NOT GET IN TROUBLE IF YOU SIMPLY SAY YOU LOST THE NOTICE, BUT THERE IS NO GUARANTEE OF THAT. PEOPLE COULD GET IN TROUBLE FOLLOWING YOUR FOOLISHLY CONFIDENT ADVICE.

My mail gets lost all the time so for all I know I may have been unintentionally avoiding the summons all along.

It's not a huge deal.

This will actually be my first time on a jury! I'm 33 and for some reason, I've never been asked. I think it's because I usually move once a year so whatever notice they have sent me never made it to me.
I could not find any e-mail address on the courthouses websites. What is it????? Their phone numbers never respond with alive agents - answering machines only. Looks like the system went to simplex, not duplex.
All i was able to du in this situation is just to sent to them a regular postal letter via mailaletter.com.

Like the other posters, I just realized that I don't have my original jury summons. I know that my reporting date begins on Monday and it is too late on this Friday afternoon to call the number (humans are no longer available after 4 p.m.). Do you know what time people are to report (if they are to report) to Santa Monica Courthouse? I'll just go in, I had planned to be available to serve all week, but I want to be sure I'm not late on Monday.

Thanks for your insight!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! It WORKED!!! The voice response never ‘tells you’ how to get to the agent- it just hangs up on you if you don’t have your Juror ID & PIN. Pressing ‘*’, then ‘0’ is the key to a live person :-)
