Lodging

If you live more than 80 miles from the courthouse, and the reporting time makes travel inconvenient, you may receive reimbursement of $144 for the night before jury selection, and during the duration of the trial.

The hotels listed are conveniently located in or near the Florence downtown area. Receipts for food or lodging are not required. Jurors are responsible for making their own hotel accommodations. You may ask for the government rate when making your reservation. Present your summons at check-in as proof.

If you elect lodging in excess of the reimbursement rate, you will be responsible for the overage.

Should you have questions, please contact the Jury Division by email at Jury@scd.uscourts.gov or call (803)253-3198 during regular business hours.

 

Parking

There are two parking lots behind the building. If these are full, park on the street and leave your summons in the windshield. Please do not park in areas designated as “no parking.”

 

Residence

The District of South Carolina is divided into four large jury areas which may require travel to a courthouse some distance from one's home. Since all jurors are selected randomly by computer, a person may be summoned to a courthouse which is not the closest Federal Courthouse to their home. Residing in one of the following counties makes you eligible to serve in Florence.

Chesterfield Marion
Darlington Marlboro
Dillon Williamsburg
Florence  
Horry  


If you have moved and no longer reside in one of the above counties, please send a letter to Clerk of Court, 901 Richland Street, Columbia, SC 29201 and you will be excused.
