Section 703.11, Florida Statutes 2001
703.11 Order granting petition; jury to assess compensation; copies of original abstracts.--Upon the day fixed, or any day to which the hearing may be adjourned, if no person shall appear, or if no sufficient cause be shown why the prayer of the petition should not be granted, then the said judge shall make an order granting the prayer of the petition and issue an order to the sheriff to impanel a jury of 12 persons to try what shall be just compensation for the said abstracts, copies, minutes, extracts, maps, or plats, or copies thereof, sought to be taken for the county. If the defendant so appearing shall, in her or his return to such order, elect that the condemnation sought by the petitioner shall, if any such condemnation be allowed, be of copies of such abstracts, copies, minutes, extracts, maps, or plats and not of the originals thereof, no condemnation shall be allowed of such originals, and the petition, in case it shall have sought a condemnation of such originals, shall thereupon be amended so as to seek only a condemnation of a copy of said abstracts, copies, minutes, extracts, maps, or plats.
