Increase in pay for jurors who serve on lengthy trials | News
Starting tomorrow jury duty might not be so bad, especially if you serve on a case that lasts for any length of time.
August 2, policy changes for how jurors are paid. If you serve on a case that lasts six or more days, in addition to the regular pay you receive ($12 a day plus mileage reimbursement) you will get an additional payment from the Arizona Lengthy Trial Fund (ALTF). This new addition is called an earnings replacement or supplementation.
This new payment will go to jurors who serve on trials that go beyond six days and are employed and will lose income while they are serving. The payments could be as little as $28 per day, up to a maximum of $300 per day.
Jurors who serve, and are either unemployed or retired will receive an additional $28 per day payment from ALTF; while those who are employed and serve, but will not lose income are not eligible for compensation.
Regular jury pay is still the same, for those who serve on a jury for less than six days get the standard $12 a day plus mileage, while those who are not chosen as jurors are eligible for mileage reimbursement only.
