Residents of Williamsburg/ James City County may be called to serve as a juror in criminal and civil cases. Once a year, individuals are chosen from Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) records and Voter Registration to be prospective jurors for the following year.
Equity suits are cases which seek judgment for something other than money. The most common of these are divorces, adoptions, boundary line disputes, and deeds/estate matters.
Case Alert Subscription System (CASS) - Notifications and alerts on a court case
The Case Alert Subscription System (CASS) can be used to receive alerts when a traffic or criminal case is updated with a change in hearing date, time and/or courtroom. The system can also be used to receive reminders 1 day, 3 days and/or 1 week before a scheduled hearing. CASS alerts will be sent as email messages or SMS text messages (or both, if desired).
