La Crosse County Circuit Court is celebrating September as Juror Appreciation Month.
There were 2,832 people summoned to serve on 36 jury trials last year in La Crosse County, Clerk of Courts Pam Radtke said. That included Eric Koula’s 18-day double homicide trial, the longest criminal trial in the county’s history.
“Wisconsin simply could not function without our jurors,” Radtke said.
The courthouse will be decorated throughout the month with posters honoring jurors, and judges and court officials will wear appreciation pins.
“We want every juror to feel appreciated and to know how much we value their time and commitment to our system of justice,” Circuit Judge Ramona Gonzalez said.
