Florida Judges Recommend
Change In State Legal
Also Recommend Appeal on Technical
Opinions by Lower Courts Presiding
Judge Should Decide His Prejudice
Other Changes Suggested.
TALLAHASSE, Fla., (Jet. 0. Recom
mendation that the state legal code be
amended so that "majority" verdicts in
both criminal and civil cases would suf
fice, was contained in the report of cir
cuit judges who met here at the call of
Governor Cary A. Hardee, to formulate
a proposed revision to the legislature at
its next session.
The judges recommended that in cases
where a jury of 12 men is required, the
verdict of 11 be accepted while in panels
of six men. the opinion of live should pre
vail. Under the present state law, all
except capital cases are tried by juries
of six men.
Another recommendation deals with
present procedure under which u judge is
automatically disqualified in a case
where two electors sign affidavits that
he is prejudiced. The judges suggested
determining whether he would be allowed
to sit in judgement of himself in de
termining whether he would be preju
diced if the allegations set forth in the
two affidavits were true. As an effort to
tliwnrf llie freim nf Inw vinl.itnra fin
technicalities, the judges' conference pro-1
posed that the state be given the right 1
of appeal from the judgement of lower j
courts where cases are dismissed on de
murrey, quashed indictments, or tile like.
The provision in the code that counsel
for the defendant shall have the last argu
ment before the jury when the defendant
does not take the stand, would be elimin
ated in the proposed changes. The con
ference also adopted Governor Hardee"':
suggestion that the jury election method
be stabilized by establishment in each
county of a jury commission who would
draw up for prospective iury service the
names of nnt less than 2!M) nor more than
Ti'.'A) qualified "male" persons. It is with
