Allegheny County jurors who were summoned for possible jury duty this week do not need to report, said Christopher H. Connors, district court administrator for the Fifth Judicial District of Pennsylvania.

Any juror who has already been picked to serve on a specific case, however, should still report, he said.

The decision to suspend jury selection was made at the request of Allegheny County President Judge Kim Berkeley Clark, he said.

“Jurors summoned for service in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas for any day during the week of March 16 through 20 will not be required to report for duty,” Connors said. “No new jury trials will be picked (this) week.”
