If I have to stay overnight in a hotel, how does that work?

If you live more than 60 miles one way from the courthouse, and driving to the courthouse the morning you are required to appear for jury duty would impose a hardship upon you, you may contact the Clerk's Office about staying overnight in a hotel. The Clerk's Office must authorize your stay in advance, and they can offer you a list of hotels in the area that offer rooms at the government rate. You will be reimbursed for your hotel stay at the prevailing government per diem rate for the locality where you report for jury duty. If you are selected for a jury and live more than 60 miles away, you may make arrangements with court personnel to stay overnight, on similar terms.
