Clerk of Courts Discusses Jury Selection Process

If you’ve ever received correspondence in the mail indicating that you are part of the pool for jury duty, you may wonder how you were selected. Connie DeFere, Door County Clerk of Courts, talked about the selection process during a visit to WDOR last week. DeFere says names are gathered from the Department of Transportation and individuals in the jury pool, can be used multiple times…

DeFere also told Eddy Allen that, depending on whether or not a case is resolved, a county resident could be released from the list after one trial until the next time around…

According to DeFere, serving on a jury is a cherished constitutional right and a civic duty, but she also understands that it can be inconvenient. With that in mind, she tries to be as flexible as possible to help those who might have difficulty serving at a given time.
