Disabilities - Physical or Mental
Print PDF

Qualified individuals with disabilities have the same opportunity and obligation to serve as jurors as individuals without disabilities.  If you have a disability that would affect, but not prevent you from serving as a juror, please provide remarks when completing the questionnaires.

If you wish to serve, but require some sort of accommodation by the court, please indicate the accommodation required on the questionnaire.

In order to be excused for a physical or mental disability you must complete the questionnaires and provide the jury office with a medical excuse from your doctor. When providing or having your doctor fax an excuse, please make sure that your name and nine (9) digit juror participant number are noted.

If requesting to be excused for medical reasons, you are required to provide the court with a medical excuse from your physician https://www.id.uscourts.gov/content_fetcher/?Ref_ID=745&content_ID=3362.  If a medical excuse has not been provided to the court, you will be qualified to serve.  If you are selected to appear for jury selection and you have not provided the court with a medical excuse prior to receiving your reporting date, you will be required to report and participate in the jury selection process.

The court may also offer you a one-time postponement of your jury service. The court's postponement policy applies.
