Mission Statement
The mission of Skagit County Superior Court is to deliver fair, prompt, and understandable resolutions of legal disputes. We will provide equal access to justice and treat participants professionally, impartially and respectfully.

Information for Jurors

Jurors are an essential part of the system of justice.  The court appreciates the service of all jurors. Additional information on your jury service is available here.

Potential Juror Scams: Superior Court will never ask jurors for their credit card or social security numbers or to pay “juror fines.”  More information about protecting yourself from potential juror scams can also be found on the juror information page and here.
