Events Leading To Exposure To The Courts In Santa Clara, California

Jury Duty: If you're a citizen of the United States, and live in Santa Clara, you've probably already dealt with the court system of Santa Clara, California by being called to jury duty. The law requires you to show up for jury duty if you are called to do so. This involves receiving a letter informing you that you have jury duty, and telling you when and where you need to show up. On the appointed day, you will be placed in a "juror pool," where you will wait to be called into court for an upcoming trial. The lawyers for both sides of the case will then engage in jury selection. If you are eliminated from the juror pool, your service is complete. If you are selected to serve on a jury, you will have to show up for the entire trial, or you might face criminal charges.

Filing a Lawsuit: Hopefully, you'll never have to file a lawsuit in Santa Clara, California, or anywhere else.
