If you don’t appear for jury service, a summons will be issued by the Jury Duty Court for the show cause hearing to explain your absence.
If you don’t appear during trial, the Judge to whom you are assigned can issue a capias to have you brought to court to address your failure to appear in trial. This is because you are now part of the trial and your duty to appear is much greater.
