Right of Appeal Jury Trial

You have the right to have your case heard by a jury. Your request for a jury must be filed with the Municipal Court in writing and it must be filed at least ten days prior to the date your case is set for trial. You must also pay a small fee to the Municipal Court Clerk. If you do those things your case will be heard before a jury in State Court before a State Judge. If you do not follow through on your request for a jury trial, the case will be sent back to the Municipal Court.
