Is jury service mandatory?

Yes. Georgia law requires that the names of potential jurors be identified through a rather complicated process. Once the citizens who are to serve on the juror panel have been identified and notices have been sent to each of the potential jurors, each juror is expected to attend the court session as outlined in the juror summons.
