Your view: Jurors appreciated

Monday, May 8, 2006

"No Justice Without You" is the theme for Missouri's Juror Appreciation Week to be celebrated May 1 - May 5.

Since 2000, the first full working week in May has been designated by the Supreme Court of Missouri as a time to honor Missourians who serve as jurors. Missouri is one of only a few states that designate a time for officially recognizing jurors and thanking them for their service.

Those of us working in New Madrid County courts strive to make your jury service a rewarding experience and sincerely appreciate the dedication and commitment shown by our New Madrid County citizens.

We are always happy to answer questions regarding jury service and our office may be reached by telephone at 573-748-2228.
