In Arizona's rural counties, Clerks of the Superior Court serve statutory duty as the Jury Commissioner for their counties. The Gila County Jury Commissioner provides the Superior Court and Justice Courts with a sufficient number of qualified jurors. These jurors serve both civil and criminal trials, as well as serving as Grand Jurors.

If summoned for jury service, you will serve as an officer of the court along with the judges and attorneys. Your service as a juror is important and it is your duty to do this honestly and conscientiously. Jury service and the right to a jury trial in a criminal proceeding are a fundamental duty and right of all United States Citizens.
