New Jury Rules Efficiently Handled by Updated Software

Douglasville, GA — On July 3, Douglas County Superior Court Clerk Rhonda G. Payne successfully drew a list of potential jurors for an August capital trial utilizing the Georgia Jury Management Software System (GAJury). GAJury v5.0 automatically draws a list of names eligible for jury service from the new statewide master list ensuring an inclusive and representative list is drawn.

“The updated version of GAJury is very user friendly. I had no problem drawing our first jury under the new law,” said Ms. Payne.

GAJury was created in the 1980s and has been updated over the years. The Administrative Office of the Courts distributes and supports the software that is offered at no cost to participating courts. Mr. Richard Denney, Senior Systems Analyst, created the most recent version.

Plans are underway to install GAJury in Catoosa, Emanuel, Hancock, Towns, Washington, and Wheeler counties by August 1.

“The AOC is happy to have been able to play a part in modernizing the manner in which our jury pools are chosen,” said Ms. Marla S. Moore, AOC Director.
