Jury Service at the Airport Courthouse
The LAX Courthouse is a part of the “One-Trial” jury service program. Under the “One-Trial” term of service, jurors are placed on call for five days. During this time, the prospective juror is required to call in to receive instructions on whether or not he or she must report for service the next day.
Once the juror has been instructed to report to the court, and if selected to serve on a jury, the obligation is fulfilled upon the conclusion of the deliberation, whether a verdict is reached, or not. The obligation is also fulfilled at the end of the five days, if the juror has not been asked to report for service, or if asked to report but not selected to serve on a jury.
When reporting for service, a person should be prepared to accept a jury trial. The average trial lasts 5-7 days.
Call in after 5:00 P.M. to receive instructions on whether you must report for service. Call (800) SRV-JURY or (800) 778-5879.
Report for service at:
11701 S. La Cienega (Room 401B for Jury Duty)
Los Angeles, CA 90045

Being Excused From Jury Duty at the LAX Courthouse
There are several reasons for asking to be excused from Jury Duty at the LAX Courthouse. Each reason must represent an EXTREME hardship. If the problem is a temporary hardship, the jury staff will work with you to postpone your service to a time when better arrangements can be made.
Some of the situations that may qualify you for an excuse from jury service include:
- Financial Hardship – You must be able to prove that this is an extreme hardship. Simply being a sole proprietor, sole practitioner, or being employed by someone who will not compensate your during your jury service will not be sufficient to have you excused from service.
- Care of Others – You must be able to prove that you provide care for a child or disabled adult and that jury service would be an extreme hardship. You must provide care continuously from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
- Medical Hardship – If you have a medical hardship that prevents you from being able to serve as a member of a jury, you must let the jury staff know about your hardship by completing the jury summons form.
An excuse from service should be requested before you appear.
