California Jury Pay Could Soon Increase to $100 a Day

Posted on

“Californians could soon be paid far more for jury duty. A bill moving through the State Legislature would give certain jurors $100 a day for serving on a criminal trial jury, a big jump from the current daily rate of $15. If the legislation passes, jurors will be eligible for the higher stipends in Los Angeles, Alameda, Kern, Monterey and San Francisco Counties through 2025. The proposal was inspired by a pilot program in San Francisco that has increased the racial and economic diversity of the county‚Äôs jury pools by providing $100 daily payments to low- and moderate-income jurors.”
