A panel of 10 men and two women was chosen to be the jury to hear a case of a woman who tripped, fell and injured herself while on Imperial Irrigation District property.
The jurors, after four days of selection process, were sworn in Monday. Today the attorneys will try to select two alternates.
The lawsuit is being brought by El Centro resident Carmen Hamrick, who at age 70, allegedly tripped outside IID's William R. Condit Auditorium on Nov. 16, 1996.
Despite the more than 100 prospective jurors summoned, there were still challenges for cause to excuse some prospective jurors who said they had seen newspaper articles about the case.
