Some individuals do seem to receive juror summonses on a more regular basis. Different courts operate independently of each other and citizens may be called to serve as jurors in each. Residents of the City of Boulder are subject to be called for jury service in the U.S. District Court and the courts of the State's 20th Judicial District, as well as to Boulder Municipal Court. Citizens are not subject to service in each court more than once each year.
