Do I need to attend jury service today? (for current jurors)
Kia ora koutou katoa,
All jurors summoned for the week commencing Monday the 25th of May 2015 at the Wellington District Court are not required to attend on Tuesday the 26th of May.
Instead you are asked to check the Jury website, or call the Jury answerphone after 6pm on Tuesday the 26th of May for further instructions.
Those jurors already on a jury trial are asked to follow the instructions given to you by the Judge or court staff in your Court.
If you are unable to attend you will need to contact the Registry on (04) 918 8444.
Thank you for your service.
