Authors: Representative Sheila Klinker

Digest

Provides that a prospective juror who is a full-time student enrolled in and attending an approved postsecondary educational institution during an academic year shall be exempted from jury service until the end of the academic year if: (1) the prospective juror requests a deferral by notifying the jury administrator that the prospective juror is a full-time student enrolled in and attending an approved postsecondary educational institution; (2) the prospective juror provides proof to the jury administrator that the jury service will likely interfere with the prospective juror's class schedule during the academic year; and (3) the court determines that the prospective juror has demonstrated that a deferral until the end of the academic year is necessary due to likely interference with the prospective juror's class schedule during the academic year.
