Juror Qualification Questionnaire

Did you receive this form?


If you received a Juror Qualification Questionnaire from the U.S. District Court, you are being considered for jury service.  However, this is not a summons for jury service and you are not being called to report at this time. 

The form is used to obtain information about you so that we can objectively determine whether you are qualified to serve as a juror in the court.   You must complete and return by mail, or on-line using eJuror within 10 days of receipt.

Arrest Warrant Scam Hits Washington State

If you are called by someone who says there is a warrant for your arrest related to missed federal jury duty, do not make any payments to them. Neither the U.S. Marshals Service, nor the U.S. District Court, will ever call to request payment of fines over the phone for failure to appear for jury duty.

These phone calls are fraudulent and typically instruct the caller to wire "settlement" money to avoid arrest. The caller will generally claim they are a federal law enforcement officer or an attorney for the U.S. government, but a valid warrant would be served in person by a U.S. Marshal or other law enforcement officer, not conducted over the phone. The caller may also mention a judge, an unspecified “United States District Court,” a case number, and other, various charges.

These fake arrest warrants were reported here in the Seattle area. Anyone demanding or obtaining money or anything of value while impersonating an officer or employee of the United States may be fined and/or imprisoned up to three years.
