Court News and Notes
One such event occurred in April when MOJO helped to promote Jury Appreciation Week throughout the state of Missouri. The Missouri Bar provided posters and brochures to all court jury offices – federal and state – and the fledgling organization worked to coordinate distribution of materials and ideas about how to honor jury service.In addition, the Missouri Jury Organization received a proclamation from Missouri Governor Jay Nixon recognizing Jury Appreciation Week.
The Missouri Jury Organization is open to all interested in the jury process (state or federal) as well as: court personnel, attorneys and paralegals. If you are interested in joining please contact, Kelsee Pierce, Jury Administrator, 816-512-5012 email@example.com or 816-512-5012.
