The Problem: Courts across the country report as high as 48% Failure to Appear (FTA) for jury duty.

Court System Impact

Many jurors who don't show up for court report having never received their summons. High nonresponse and FTA rates force the summoning of extra jurors and cause staff time to be used on jury-related tasks.

Public Impact

Inaccurate addresses can cause mail delivery failure. No-shows overburden those who do participate and lead to less diverse jury pools that inadequately represent marginalized communities.
