Juror Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How much time is involved in reviewing a JuryMatters case?  It will vary based upon the complexity of the case. We estimate that JuryMatters Jurors spend about 45 minutes per case reviewing the Summary of Facts and submitting the Verdict Forms.
How often will I be asked to review cases? JuryMatters assigns Jurors randomly to cases. It’s difficult to estimate how often an individual Juror will receive a case to review.
What are the qualifications to serve as a JuryMatters Juror? The qualifications to serve as a JuryMatters Juror are very similar to those to serve on an actual jury. Click here to review the requirements. By registering as a JuryMatters Jurors, it is understood that a Juror will spend the time to fully examine the evidence and render their verdict for each case they chose to review.
What information do you need from me to register?  The questions asked when Jurors register are very similar to those asked when someone is called for Jury Duty. (Name, Address, Phone Number), as well as demographic information (like Gender and Age). Your identity is always kept confidential.
Will JuryMatters give my personal information to the lawyers working on the case or anyone else?  No. Your name, address and other private information will not be shared with anyone outside of JuryMatters. After the case is closed, the attorneys who prepared the case will receive verdict information for Jurors as a group and for particular demographic segments (e.g., women over 50 or men under 30.), but never Jurors names, addresses, phone numbers or email addresses.
How will I know when I have a new case to review? You’ll receive a “You’ve Got a Case” email from JuryMatters. The email will include the name of the case, the fee that JuryMatters will pay for you to review the case, as well as instructions for opening the case and beginning your review.
How long do I have to respond to the “You’ve Got a Case” email? There is no time limit. A case remains open until JuryMatters has received verdicts from the number of Jurors listed in the “You’ve Got a Case” email. Once the desired number of verdicts have been received, the case will be marked “Case Closed” and no more verdicts will be accepted. An estimate of when the case will close is usually included in the “You’ve Got a Case” email.
What happens if I don’t respond to the “You’ve Got a Case” email or don’t want to review a particular case? No problem. It will have no impact on your receiving JuryMatters cases to review in the future.
How much will I be paid for reviewing a case? Payments range from $14-$21 per case, depending upon the complexity of the case.
How will I be paid?  JuryMatters will mail you a check within 30 days of your Verdict being submitted and accepted. Please remember that JuryMatters can only pay for Verdicts received before the case is closed and from Verdicts whose Juror Profile is up-to-date.
What if I don’t want to review any more JuryMatters cases?  When you click the “Unregister” link on the Juror page, we will remove your name from the Jury Pool for future cases. We will also send you an e-mail confirming that you have been “unregistered”. Of course you will be paid for any cases you have reviewed, if the verdict was received before the case was closed.
What if I am called by the Courts for Jury Duty in the City or County where I live? You may not review JuryMatters cases once you are first notified by the Courts that you are in the pool from which Jurors are selected. Once your ‘term’ is finished, we look forward to your participation once again. JuryMatters requires that you not review JuryMatters cases during your term, because you could be called as an actual Juror on a case which you reviewed for JuryMatters. This would be unfair to you and the parties in the actual case, and could cause a mistrial. JuryMatters has no way of knowing who has been called for Jury Duty, so it is up to JuryMatters Jurors not to respond to any JuryMatters cases during their Jury Duty term.
