With more than 2,000 jury trials in Indiana each year, a critical part of each trial is gathering an impartial jury as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. In September 2005, the Indiana Supreme Court created a comprehensive list of potential jurors available to every county free of charge. Since then, courts all over the state have observed more representative, inclusive and diverse jury pools and the Indiana Supreme Court's Jury Pool program has been honored with national and state awards.
The Indiana Supreme Court, the Judicial Technology and Automation Committee (JTAC), and the Indiana Jury Committee have taken the next step by developing a web-based Jury Management System (JMS) that is available to all courts at no cost.
The JMS is available through the INcite (Indiana Court Information Technology Extranet) website. Counties can select jurors randomly, assign panels, manage panels, and manage claims to pay jurors. The system prints labels and reports and exports data for use in other documents. In the future the system will provide a website for citizens to check if they are needed for service via the Internet instead of calling the courthouse.
Fifty-seven Indiana counties use the JMS. Counties that do not use the JMS have the ability to securely export their Supreme Court-approved master jury list or create jury pools from their master list through INcite jury application.
If you are interested in using the JMS or for more information about the application, please contact Jill Russell at (317) 234-2734 (Fax: 317-234-2605) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
