United States District Court
Northern District Of Illinois
(a) General. The chief judge shall from time to time enter such orders as may be required
to summon petit jurors for the court. Except as provided for in section (b),
petit jurors shall be assigned to a single jury pool and reassigned for service
upon the request of each judge. The jury pool shall be under the supervision
of the clerk. Unless otherwise ordered a copy of the jury list showing the
name, town and ZIP code of each juror summoned shall be available for viewing on
the first day of the service period.
(b) Separate Panels. Where the extraordinary nature of a trial indicates that administrative
efficiency will be improved and substantial judicial time will be saved through the
use of a separate panel of petit jurors, the chief judge may, at the request of
the trial judge, direct that such a separate jury panel be summoned.
(c) Qualification Forms are Confidential. Juror qualification forms completed by the jurors shall be confidential. Such
forms shall not be made available for inspection except upon order of the chief
judge or upon order of the assigned judge in connection with the preparation
or presentation of a motion challenging compliance with selection procedures
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §1867. Orders directing that the juror qualification forms
be made available for inspection shall specify the terms of the inspection,
including the forms to be inspected, the names of the persons authorized to make
the inspection, and any conditions required regarding the release of information
contained on the forms.
