WTIU Participates in Jury Service PSA Campaign

Indiana judges and public television stations have come together to remind Hoosiers about the importance of serving on a jury.

WTIU, Indiana’s other public television stations, and Indiana judges have come together to remind Indiana viewers about the importance of serving on a jury. The partnership between the Indiana Supreme Court and Indiana Public Broadcasting Stations (IPBS) resulted in a series of Public Service Announcements (PSAs) on jury service. The campaign “Jury Service: It’s Your Duty” includes eight PSAs that were launched daily on the Supreme Court’s website and Twitter page weekdays from July 21 through August 1:

The series of PSAs offers commentary from local judges and legal experts about why jury service is a core element of the democratic process. The one-minute messages encourage the public to actively engage in “government by the people” by answering the call to serve as a juror.

Judges and legal experts appearing in the PSA’s include Supreme Court Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard, Judge David Dreyer of Marion Superior Court, Judge Stanley A. Levine of Allen Superior Court, Judge Linda Ralu Wolf of Delaware Circuit Court, Judge Francis Hill of Monroe Circuit Court, Judge Mary Margaret Lloyd of Vanderburgh Superior Court, Judge Sherry Gregg Gilmore of Knox Circuit Court, Judge Salvador Vasquez of Lake Superior Court, Judge Diane Boswell of Lake Superior Court, attorney Betsy Greene of Bloomington and Indiana University Maurer School of Law Professor Joseph L. Hoffman.

The PSAs have been broadcast more than 450 times on a market-by-market basis on IPBS’s eight PBS member television stations across the state, including:

WTIU (Bloomington)
WNIN (Evansville)
WFWA (Fort Wayne)
WFYI (Indianapolis)
WYIN (Merrillville)
WIPB (Muncie)
WNIT (South Bend/Elkhart)
WVUT (Vincennes)

Sponsors for the spots include the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Indiana Trial Lawyers Association, the Indiana Bar Association, the Indiana Paralegal Association, Indiana Public Broadcasting Stations and the Indiana Supreme Court.
