§ 18.1. Alternative plan for selection of jurors with aid of mechanical or electronic means
A. In lieu of any other procedure now provided by law, the judge in charge of court administration in the county may, by order, adopt a plan for the selection of qualified jurors for jury service with the aid of mechanical or electronic means and implement such plan upon its approval by the Supreme Court.
B. Any such plan so adopted shall conform to the following requirements:
1. A complete plan shall be proposed in writing and submitted for approval by the Supreme Court.
2. It shall provide a fair, impartial and objective method of selecting persons for jury service with the aid of mechanical or electronic equipment.
3. It shall designate the court clerk as the official to be in charge of the selection process and shall define the duties of the court clerk.
4. It shall specify that a true and complete written list showing the names and addresses of the persons summoned to begin jury service on a particular date shall be filed of record with the court clerk at least ten (10) days prior to the date such persons are to begin jury service.
C. In any county where such a plan is adopted, as provided in this section, the laws relating to the selection of petit jurors by use of a jury wheel shall not apply. In such counties, a municipal court, at the option of the municipal judge, may select jurors in the same manner as provided for by the plan. The municipal court clerk shall be designated to fulfill the duties provided in the plan for the district court clerk.
