Several Monterey County residents have recently reported receiving a phone call from an individual claiming to be a law enforcement officer asking for payment of a fine because the resident did not appear for jury service. These calls are fraudulent and have no connection to the Monterey County Superior Court. Anyone receiving a phone call from someone demanding payment for failure to appear for jury service should report it immediately as a crime to their local law enforcement agency. Also, please note that Monterey County Superior Court Jury Services personnel do not ask past, current, or prospective jurors for information regarding credit card numbers, bank account information, or Social Security numbers. Please do not provide this type of information to anyone claiming to be associated with Jury Services.

It is the mission of the Monterey County Superior Court to serve the public in a respectful, courteous and efficient manner promoting trust and confidence in the legal system by providing fair, equal and open access to justice.
Under the current Monterey County and Regional Stay at Home Order, the Superior Court in Monterey County is considered an essential government service. Therefore the Superior Court remains open to the public to provide critical access to justice to the people of Monterey County.
The Superior Court would like to remind the public that the Stay at Home Order requires people to stay at home except when accessing essential services. In order to be able to maintain adequate social distancing and important safety precautions at court facilities during this critical period of the pandemic, the Superior Court requests and encourages that for the duration of the Stay at Home Order, people stay home unless they (1) are summoned or otherwise required to appear at a courthouse, or (2) must appear in person in order to access court services.
The public also has many options for accessing court services remotely. Please see this link for more information: https://www.monterey.courts.ca.gov/covid-information .
