Jury Service in State Court
Federal courts are courts of limited jurisdiction. Most legal disputes are adjudicated in courts operated by the state in which the dispute arose. In Oregon, the state trial courts are called circuit courts for the county in which they reside.
If you were called to serve for jury duty by a Circuit Court of a county within Oregon, you will need to visit the Oregon Judicial Department's website for more information.
