    The witness list has been read to the potential jurors. Nobody has raised their hand indicating they shouldn't serve. #badenclay

    Haven't heard about the reserve jurors. I attended the Morcombe trial on the day one of the jurors hobbled in on crutches having broken her leg on the weekend. The judge told the jurors they should be not doing risky activities during the trial.

    Alioop do you think it would be worth heading into court now ?

    Potential jurors have now left the court to fill out a questionnaire which will help the court determine if they are impartial. #badenclay

    Like the Morcombe trial I think Allison's parents will be the first prosecution witnesses to enable them to sit in the courtroom if they wish to and listen to all the other witnesses.

    Would have thought they would do that prior to selection really so I wonder if they will then need to choose more jurors.

    11:16am: Justice John Byrne asked any jurors concerned about their ability to remain impartial during the trial to raise their hand.

    None raised their hand.

    The questionnaire has now been distributed to the jury. The jury will retire to the jury room to answer the questions.

    Interesting that Nigel has been called upon to testify but not Elaine. Thoughts, Alioop?

    Guess it's easier for 12 people to fill out a questionnaire about a particular trial than have all 80 or so that were available to do it.

    3 reserve jurors also chosen. They may sit all the way through the trial then not have any part in the jury deliberations or decision. That is community service!
