Jury Service – Weather & Dress

What to do in the case of inclement weather as well as how to properly dress when in court.

Inclement Weather:

In case of inclement weather, please listen to your local area radio stations, and TV stations to find out if you should report.

The Circuit Clerk/Deputies will also make every attempt to notify you by telephone if a trial has been postponed/cancelled due to the weather.

You can also check for the latest office closings information from the Benton County homepage.

Dress Code:

There are no set rules about dress in court.

Business casual is a good dress directive.

You should also be comfortable.

Please avoid extremes–shorts, halter tops, inappropriate t-shirts, muscle shirts and dress of a similar nature are not permitted.

The important thing is to remember that you are going to a place of respect, so please dress accordingly.
