12.14 Jury Demands


A petitioner or claimant desiring a trial by jury when permitted must file a jury demand with the clerk and pay the fee at the time of filing the petition or claim. A person opposing the petition or claim and desiring a trial by jury must file a jury demand with the clerk and pay the fee at the time of filing the answer or other responsive pleading. If the petitioner or claimant file a jury demand and thereafter waives a jury, the person opposing will be granted a jury trial upon demand made within 14 days after being notified of the waiver and upon payment of the fee. Otherwise each party waives a jury.
