Findings from the 2017 Grand Jury Survey

The CGJA Board wanted to learn more about grand jury practices throughout the state with the intention of using the results to improve our services to juries. A work group chaired by Jerry Lewi including members of relevant committees – Karen Jahr (Legal & Legislative Resources), Marsha Caranci (Training), and Jim Ragan (Public Relations) – developed the survey. They contacted all 58 juries, connecting by mail with follow-up by email and phone, with the foreperson, pro tem or someone else directly connected to the jury. They received 49 survey responses (84%). Click here for the results.

The results of that survey are posted here. Note, this information was reported to CGJA in 2021 and may no longer be accurate. Contact the specific county superior court for the latest per diem rates.
