On May 13th the Pierce County Council joined Governor Jay Inslee and signed a proclamation naming May 19th to 23rd as Juror Appreciation Week. See a video of the Council vote.
Juries are a cornerstone of our American court system. 95% of the world’s juries are held here in the United States. Jury service imposes on the jurors lives and to many it is a sacrifice to serve. Without these individuals our jury trial system would grind to a halt. To all who have been summoned for or served on Pierce County juries Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.
Jury had a number of visitors and got special treats, some pictures of the celebration are below:
