Have you ever wondered who pays jurors their daily fee for serving? In D.C., it’s JPMorgan Chase & Co. In Washington, D.C. a juror is paid $34 dollar per day for serving.
If you are chosen for a trial in the District, you receive $30 per day and $4 travel subsidy. A Juror that is not selected for a trial only receives the $4 travel fee for that day.
But now, a lawsuit has been filed against JPMorgan Chase & Co. in Federal Court for unjust enrichment and violation of the Consumer Protection Act. It accuses JPMorgan Chase of deceptive and unlawful schemes to deprive jurors of their full payment for jury service.
In D.C. a juror receives a debit card when they check in, with payments uploaded on the cards daily after 5 pm, according to how they serve.
