Brad Henry signed the S.B. 479 into law on June 10, strengthening the state's jury system by making it easier tbr citizens to serve as jurors. Governor Henry's approval follows the Oklahoma House of Representatives passage of the comprehensive jury service improvement law by a vote of 92-7 on May 28. The bill had passed the Oklahoma Senate two days earlier by a 45-1 vote. The legislation, introduced by Representative Jari Askins (D-Duncan) and Senator Jerry Smith (R-Tulsa), is based on a model Jury Patriotism Act developed by the American Legislative Exchange Council, the nation's largest nonpartisan, individual membership group of state legislators. Oklahoma is the eighth state to enact legisla- tion based on ALEC's model. "Plaintiffs and defendants in both civil and criminal cases deserve to receive a fair trial before a true jury of their peers," said Duane Parde, ALEC's Executive Director. "That's why making jury service more appealing and rewarding to citizens is so critical. The Jury Patriotism Act will help strengthen Oklahoma's jury system." Oklahoma's new jury law will: Provide those summoned to jury service with the right to One automatic postponement with a simple and convenient fnethod of rescheduling service to a more convenient time. Reduce the length of jury ser- vice from a two-week term with the potential to be required to serve as many as 18 days each year to no more than one day at the courthouse unless selected to serve on a jury panel. t Protect citizens from being called repeatedly for jury ser- trice by limiting jury service to tao more than onc every two t years. Fairly compensate jurors selected to serve on lengthy trials. Citizens who not fully compensated by their employ- ers would be eligible for com- pensation of up to $200 per day after the tenth day of service. The additional compensation would be financed through a $10 fee paid by attorneys filing civil cases in state trial courts, and would not require an alloca- tion of state resources. Provide jurors with greater employment protection. Jurors would be protected from any adverse action on account of their response to a juror sum- mons and could not be required to use leave time in order to serve. Differ jury service for an employee of a small business if another employee of the same business is summoned for ser- vice during the same period. In consideration of the addi- tional flexibility of jury service and to ensure the most repre- sentative jury, the new law also would make it more difficult to get excused from jury service for reasons other than true hardship, and provides for a fine of up to $500 or required community service for those who ignore a juror summons. "Oklahoma's new jury law will make jury service easier for all Oklahomans and protect the right to representative jury,' said Kristin Armshaw, Director of the ALEC's Civil Justice Task Force, which developed the model legislation. Oklahoma jurors will benefit from the new law when it takes effect on July 1, 2004. Additional compensa- tion for jurors on lengthy trials will become available on Janu- ary 1, 2005.
