When an additional number of jurors is needed for a jury service term in a county because the jury list for the term becomes exhausted, or in the opinion of the presiding judge for the judicial district is likely to become exhausted, before the end of the term, additional jurors may be selected and summoned as provided in this section.

(2)

The presiding judge for the judicial district may order an additional number of names selected from the master jury list and added to the jury list for the panel or term in the same manner as the original jury list is prepared. As directed by the presiding judge of the circuit court, the persons whose names are added to the jury list for the panel or term shall be summoned by the clerk of court giving written notice to each of them by mail or by the sheriff or other officer giving written notice to each of them personally or by leaving written notice at the person’s place of residence with some person of suitable age and discretion. The notice need be given only a reasonable time before the day on which the persons summoned are required to attend.

If the master jury list becomes exhausted or in the opinion of the presiding judge is likely to become exhausted, the presiding judge may order that the clerk of court select an additional number of names from the source lists described in ORS 10.215 (Master jury list) (1) and that the persons whose names are so selected be summoned as provided in subsection (2) of this section.

(4)

If there is an immediate need for additional jurors, a judge of the circuit court for the county may direct the clerk of court, sheriff or other officer to summon a sufficient number of eligible persons to meet that need. Those persons shall be summoned as directed by the judge. [1985 c.703 §15; 1995 c.781 §26; 2013 c.2 §5]
