Court Administration recognizes Sonja Maylor and Yesenia Gomez as joint Employees of the Quarter. Sonja and Yesenia manage the Jury Services Department for Orange and Osceola counties, respectively. Their guidance and supervision through the recent migration of the Jury Management System was critical in effectuating a smooth transition from one system to the other. Sonja worked for the Clerk's Office for many years, before coming to work for Court Administration in 1997. Yesenia has been employed at the Ninth Circuit for almost 6 years.
The Jury Department is responsible for the summonsing and processing of jurors. On average, over 300,000 jurors are summoned in Orange and Osceola counties. With recent upgrades to the jury management system, jury services has been able to reduce the amount of jurors summonsed by over 25%, saving thousands of dollars from the budget.
