Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This bill was changed in the House to strip the original bill (which has been added to HB 786) and instead allows for six person jury trials in superior and state courts for criminal and civil matters if both parties agree. This modified jury requirements was created in reaction to COVID 19 concerns and has a one year sunset.
