(705 ILCS 305/10.4)
Removal of prospective juror due to total and permanent disability.
If a prospective juror is found to be unqualified due to the existence of a total and permanent disability or is excused for undue hardship that is due to the existence of a total and permanent disability, the county board, jury administrator, or jury commissioners shall permanently exclude the prospective juror from all current and subsequent jury lists or general jury lists. Proof of total and permanent disability shall be a written letter from a licensed physician that states the prospective juror has a total and permanent disability as defined in this Section, describes the disability, explains how it prevents the prospective juror from serving as a juror, and states that the prospective juror will never be able to serve as a juror.
The county board, jury administrator, or jury commissioners shall create and maintain a list of persons to be permanently excluded from any jury list or general jury list pursuant to this Section.
For the purposes of this Section, "total and permanent disability" means any physical or mental impairment, disease, or loss of a permanent nature that prevents performance of the duties of a juror.
