Lodging

If you reside more than 80 miles from the courthouse, you are authorized to spend the night. Bring enough money to last for several days in case you are selected to serve on a case starting after jury selection.

Some hotels offer discounts to federal jurors so ask for the room rate since government rates are seasonal and subject to availability. Present your jury summons at check-in and verify the rate. You will be reimbursed for food, lodging and mileage at the rates indicated on your summons.

Residence

The District of South Carolina is divided into three 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 Columbia or Florence.

Chester Florence Lexington Williamsburg
Chesterfield Horry Marion York
Darlington Kershaw Marlboro  
Dillon Lancaster Richland  
Fairfield Lee Sumter  


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.
