A state judge is promising to rule within days about how the office of jury commissioner should be handled in this year's Pennsylvania elections.
Commonwealth Court Judge James Gardner Colins said during a two-hour hearing in Harrisburg on Wednesday that he was considering three options.
He's trying to figure out what to do because 42 counties eliminated the offices under a 2011 law that was thrown out by the state Supreme Court last month. Colins says he'll either order the offices back on the May primary ballot, let the parties nominate candidates for the fall election or allow incumbent jury commissioners to remain in office until 2015.
The high court threw out the law because it violated the state constitution's requirement that bills be confined to a single subject.
