JURY REGULATION 2017 - REG 12

Jury fees in civil cases—Act, s 65

12 Jury fees in civil cases—Act, s 65

(1) The fee payable under section 65 (1) (a) or (2) (a) of the Act is 873.10 fee units.
(2) The fee payable under section 65 (1) (b) or (2) (b) of the Act is comprised of both of the following—
(a) the total amount of remuneration payable to jurors and reserve jurors for the day;
(b) the total amount payable under sections 10 and 11 .
(3) The fee payable under subsection (2) (a) is payable before the start of each day of the trial.
(4) The fee payable under subsection (2) (b) is payable within 7 days after a sheriff gives the person required to pay the fee written notice of the amount payable.
(5) Subsection (6) applies for working out the amount of a fee under subsection (1) .
(6) For the purpose of the Acts Interpretation Act 1954 , section 48C (3) , the amount is to be rounded—
(a) if the result is not more than $1,000—to the nearest multiple of 10 cents (rounding one-half upwards); or
(b) if the result is more than $1,000 but not more than $5,000—to the nearest dollar (rounding one-half upwards).
Example for paragraph (a)—
Subsection (1) prescribes a fee of 873.10 fee units. If the value of a fee unit for this regulation were $1.50, the number of dollars obtained by multiplying $1.50 by 873.10 would be $1,309.65. Because $1,309.65 is halfway between $1,309.60 and $1,309.70, it is rounded upwards, so the amount of the fee for subsection (1) would be $1,309.70.
