Section 12-16-140

Procedure generally.

In all civil actions triable by jury, either party may demand a struck jury and must thereupon be furnished by the clerk with a list of 24 jurors in attendance upon the court, from which a jury must be obtained by the parties or their attorneys alternately striking one from the list until 12 are stricken off, the party demanding the jury commencing.

The jury thus obtained must not be challenged for any cause, except bias or interest as to the particular case.
