Welcome to the
Montgomery County
Genesis Juror Portal Information Website

Trial by jury is a fundamental part of the American system of justice, and is a right guaranteed under the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Tennessee. To preserve this right it is essential that the court establish and maintain a well-functioning system for the selection and utilization of jurors.

Montgomery County utilizes the 8 Day Term (2 weeks) system of jury service for petit jurors. Under this system a person called to jury duty serves Monday thru Thursday for 2 weeks.  If a person is called for jury service as a grand juror they will serve 2 days a month for 3 consecutive months.

The number of names selected is based upon the number required to actually report, as specified by the judges. These names are drawn randomly from computerized Drivers License lists.

The citizens of Montgomery County can take pride in having one of the most modern jury systems operating in Tennessee. When you have completed your service as a juror, it is hoped you will have a higher opinion of the privilege enjoyed by the free citizens of our country to participate in the administration of justice. In serving as a juror, you know that you have discharged a serious responsibility in a conscientious manner.

"Citizens of the United States have enjoyed for over 200 years the right to have their cases decided by a jury of their peers. Jury service is not merely your responsibility - it is also a cherished right."
