Master Lists May Be Used In Selecting Jurors INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) - The ^Indiana Supreme Court approved unanimously Monday the use of master voters registration lists as.the best available system for selecting jurors. The ruling involved a test case in Vanderburgh County following Circuit Court Judge William H. Miller's order last year to the jury commissioners to select prospective - jurors from the most recent list of registered voters. Jurors, by. state law, are selected from tax duplicates of the county's list of property owners. Miller said he based his deci-. sion on the drastic reduction in the number of names appearing^ on the tax lists. Recent changes in state laws have caused tax lists to dwindle considerably.. One change affected " car owners, who now pay their excise tax at the time they purchase their license, plates. Another switch removed many property owners' from the tax list but did not exempt them from continuing to pay taxes. Monday's formal decision confirmed a telephoned poll' taken last Dec. 21 by Chief Justice Donald Hunter, and favoring Miller's stand unanimously. At that time. Hunter said, "I think we have the constitutionality to do it." The case got to the high court when a "friend of the court" suit was filed by Vanderburgh C o u n t y Prosecutor William J. Brune in which he petitioned the court to invalidate Miller's order.
