If you have received a summons to appear for jury duty in Municipal Court for a trial on a specific day and date, please call (406) 552-6166 and leave your name, date of trial, and state that you have received the summons. If you have recently received a postcard regarding summons, this is not from Municipal Court. Please see the postcard for specific contact details.
Please note that although the Notice of Jury Service indicates that your signature must be witnessed and notarized on the questionnaire, this is an error. It is NOT required to have your signature notarized. We apologize for any inconvenience.
If you are not able to participate in jury duty, please complete then email, mail, or fax the juror excusal request (DOC)form with supporting documentation (i.e., doctor note, airline reservations, etc.) Requests for excusal will not be considered unless submitted on the proper form, available from the Clerk of Court.
Please make sure that you have been summoned for jury duty at Missoula Municipal Court rather than Justice or District Court before sending an excusal request form.
Please send the Juror Excusal Request form to:

You will be notified of the status of your request via a phone call from the court. If you do not hear from the court regarding your excusal, you are expected to show for jury duty.
