Pennsylvania highest court is upholding a law that permits counties to do away with the job of jury commissioner.
The Supreme Court issued a brief order that rejected an attempt by jury commissioners and their association to overturn the law signed by Gov. Tom Corbett in May.
Earlier this year, the justices struck down a previous version of the law. The new ruling concerns a law passed by the Legislature to address problems with the previous version, under which 42 counties did away with the job.
A single justice, Debra Todd, dissented from the majority decision. The court plans to issue full opinions later.
Jury commissioners develop procedures to pick jury lists, make sure jurors are selected fairly and manage jury pools.
