Welcome to the Superior Court of the Virgin Islands. You have been
selected to perform one of the most sacred tasks of a citizen: to serve as a
juror. A jury of one’s peers is the embodiment of our American system of
justice. Trial by jury helps to safeguard our most fundamental freedoms and
ensures the impartial resolution of disputes.
Serving as a juror is an important civic responsibility, one which requires you
to devote valuable time in order to serve. I am well aware of the sacrifices
which jury duty commands. On behalf of the judiciary and the entire community,
I thank you for having the courage and commitment to serve.
Michael C. Dunston
