Big news – potential jurors in Alameda County could be sent anywhere in the county

The Alameda County Courts Executive Committee is proposing moving to a county jury pool for all case types, including misdemeanors and in all locations. That could mean jurors won’t necessarily be called to serve at the court they live closest to. This is already the case for felony cases.

The courts will accept public comment on the proposed change until May 3, 2018, with the proposed change taking effect July 1.

Written comments can be submitted to pcomments@alameda.courts.ca.gov; to Superior Court of California, County of Alameda, Attn: Jasmine Polar, 1225 Fallon Street, Room 209, Oakland, CA 94612; or via fax to (510) 891-6276
