AP II, Sec. 6 Juror summons
(1) The chief circuit judge or designee shall cause each person drawn for jury service to be served with a summons requiring that person to report for jury service at a specified time and place, unless otherwise notified by the court, and to be available for jury service for 30 judicial days thereafter. The service of summons shall be accomplished utilizing centralized mailing through the Administrative Office of the Courts. The summons will be addressed to the juror at his or her usual residence, business, or post office address. In the event service cannot be accomplished via first class mail through centralized mailing, the court may cause service to be made personally by the sheriff. In either case, notice shall be mailed or served to the prospective juror at least 30 days before required to report for service.
(2) The juror qualification form required by Section 7 of these Rules and any additional county inserts submitted to and approved by the Administrative Office of the Courts shall be enclosed with the summons.
(3) In order to control mailing costs, county inserts shall be in a format prescribed by the Administrative Office of the Courts as follows:
(a) An insert shall not exceed four pages of text total (two pages front and back). Two separate pages will be printed on a single page front and back.
(b) Pages must be 8 1/2″ by 11″ in size.
(c) Conversion to PDF or PDF/A format is required before submitting to the Administrative Office of the Courts.
(d) The name of the county shall be clearly identified at the top of the insert. If the insert bears a seal, it Shall be the current Kentucky Court of Justice seal.
(e) Language, structure, and design shall be clear so that the intended audience can easily understand and use the information provided.
(4) If a county insert does not meet the requirements as outlined in subsection (3) of this section, the Administrative Office of the Courts will notify the chief circuit judge or designee via email of the need for modification(s).
(5) The Administrative Office of the Courts will store county inserts electronically in the Jury Management Program; therefore, each county must ensure that its inserts are current and up to date.
(6) Any prospective juror who does not return the juror qualification form within 10 days or such other time as may be specified in the summons may, at the discretion of the chief circuit judge or designee, be personally served the summons by the sheriff.
