San Diego courts offer free WiFi to jurors

San Diegans reporting for jury duty can now access wireless Internet in the court’s jury lounge at no charge, it was announced Wednesday.

The San Diego Superior Court implemented the program this week in a continuing effort to enhance the experience of jury service.

“Citizen participation is the lifeblood of our judicial system,” said Presiding Judge Kevin A. Enright.

“It is our goal to make that participation as good of an experience as possible,” he said. “More and more jurors and bringing their laptops or other portable devices to the court and asking for access to the Internet while waiting to serve on a jury. We are happy to be able to meet that need.”

WiFi “hot spots” at the Superior Court’s four jury lounges located in downtown San Diego, El Cajon, Chula Vista and Vista will allow those with a valid juror badge number and a court-provided password to have Internet access.
