Blind Justice:

Commenter LawClerk points to S.C. Code Ann. § 14-7-1060, which until 2006 provided that juror choices be made "[by a] child under ten years of age, or by a blind person." This has now been changed to the much less colorful requirement that the drawing be by a "responsible and impartial person designated by the clerk of court, with the approval of the presiding judge."
