Jury Information

The Clerk of Superior Court has established a Jury Liaison Officer to assist in the process of jury selection, deferrals and excuses. The Jury Liaison Officer for Carroll County is Catherine Huckeba. This is the jurors FIRST contact. You may contact her by phone, fax, mail or email. You may email her with your questions or legal excuse information and legal excuse affidavits by clicking on her name on this page. You may also fax any legal excuse information or affidavits to 770-214-3584; Attention: Catherine. There is a message line to call with voice mail requests for legal excuses and deferrals. The phone number is 770-830-5931.
Please review the legal excuses below. If you legitimately fall under one of the categories list, you will be either excused or deferred to a later date.
               ONLY LEAVE ONE MESSAGE PER SUMMONS!
(Multiple messages will not assure a call back any faster and they flood the line with unnecessary messages!!!)  Please be advised that at any given time we have numerous jury pools selected and the message line may be backed up with incoming messages. The Jury Liaison Officer will listen to and manually record your requests for legal excuses or deferrals each day. Legal excuses will be excused and WILL NOT receive a call back. Legal excuses are listed below. Non legal excuses or questionable excuses will receive further instruction. Due to the number of jurors being summoned, written confirmations for legal excuses will not be issued. If you are unsure about your excuse and have not received a call back, please report to jury duty at your summoned time. At that time you will be given an opportunity to give your excuse to the court for consideration.
 
Please keep in mind that the Jury Liaison Officer has other duties within the Clerk's office and is extremely busy. Your calls will be returned based on importance and as time permits. If they are not returned, you will need to report for jury duty!
 
 
           The following affidavits are provided for your convenience. They can be downloaded, filled out, then returned to our office as attachments in an email to Catherine, or a faxed at the number given above.
