The jury process can require a juror to wait a considerable amount of time. For this reason, jurors are encouraged to bring a book or other forms of reading materials with them to the jury assembly room. Cellular phones, pagers, and computers are allowed in the jury assembly room but are not permitted in the courtroom.
Petit jurors serve one week or until an assigned trial is completed. Grand jurors serve 90 days and meet every Tuesday for three months.
