Escalon Times - - NEWS -

The Su­pe­rior Court of San Joaquin County is cel­e­brat­ing Ju­ror Ap­pre­ci­a­tion Week, May 14 through 18, to rec­og­nize the ser­vice and par­tic­i­pa­tion of ju­rors from the lo­cal com­mu­nity. Recog­ni­tion for ju­rors dur­ing the sec­ond week in May was es­tab­lished by a spe­cial res­o­lu­tion passed by the Cal­i­for­nia Leg­is­la­ture in 1998 to ac­knowl­edge the im­por­tant con­tri­bu­tions of cit­i­zens who de­vote their time and ef­fort in “mak­ing the cher­ished right of trial by jury a re­al­ity.”

On Tues­day, May 15, the county’s Board of Su­per­vi­sors pre­sented a procla­ma­tion to the Su­pe­rior Court to honor the cit­i­zens of San Joaquin County who have served as ju­rors. Also, dur­ing Ju­ror Ap­pre­ci­a­tion Week ju­rors are greeted each morn­ing by Judges or the Court Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer who rec­og­nize the ju­rors for their vi­tal role in the jus­tice sys­tem.
