Jury Summons

Welcome! Kalispell Municipal Court is excited to begin the 2023 jury term. Pursuant to §3-15-402 M.C.A., you have been selected to be a member of the Kalispell Municipal Court jury pool from January 1, 2023 through December 31, 2023. Jury duty is paramount to the American system of justice. Without individuals like you who are willing to serve, this great system would cease to function. Jury duty is not only a privilege and an honor; it is also a civic duty.  Any citizen that has a Montana driver’s license, State issued ID, and/or is a registered voter maybe selected for Jury Duty. 

Municipal Court holds jury trials every other Thursday. Jurors are selected randomly as required by state law. If you are selected as a juror for a given date, you will receive a letter advising the date and time that you are to report for duty. Please note that each trial usually lasts only a single day. 

If you have been randomly selected to serve as a juror in Kalispell Municipal Court, please report to Kalispell Public Safety Building, 312 1st Ave East, between 8:30-8:45 am.

  • If you have misplaced your jury questionnaire submit online.

  • 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.
