Celebrated from May 2-6 is "Juror Week" in honor of the right to a trial by jury and the core value of American citizenship. The fundamental democratic structure of our country allows the right to vote and for that reason, all citizens should be encouraged to respond when summoned for jury duty, says District Clerk Laura Hinojosa.

Service by citizens as jurors is indispensable to the judicial system and is a continuing and imperative goal for the courts, the bar, and the broader community to ensure that jury selection and service is fair, effective, and not burdensome on anyone, said Jury Clerk April Lizcano.

The District Clerk's office will celebrate Juror Appreciation Week and National County Government Month with an Open House from 9-11 a.m. on Monday, May 2. The office is located on the first floor of the Hidalgo County Courthouse.

Hidalgo County Commissioners Court proclaimed the week of May 2, 2016 as "Jury Appreciation Week."
