HCCLR 7 Jury Selection - CR 47 (a) (A) Prior to trial, in those counties that have the software capability, the clerk will by computer randomly draw and assign a juror number to all of the prospective jurors called for a particular trial. In all other counties this shall be done manually in open court at the commencement of the trial. A list of prospective juror names and numbers will be provided to the parties. (B) The Court will use a "struck jury" or "Donohue" method of jury selection with the "up through the chairs" rather than "replacement" feature. General questions and preliminary instructions used by the Court are found in the Washington Superior Court Criminal and Civil Benchbooks. Any party may request the Court to ask prospective jurors appropriate additional general questions proposed in advance in writing and submitted with jury instructions. Each attorney or pro se party will be given one block of time to ask any general or individual questions. (Effective 9/1/03)
