LR 48 - Jurors and Participation in the Verdict
(See Fed. R. Civ. P. 48)
LR 48-1 Number of Jurors
The Court will fix the number of jurors in a civil case.
LR 48-2 No Communications With Jurors - Before, During, and After Trial
Except as authorized by the Court, attorneys, parties, witnesses, or court employees must not initiate contact with any juror concerning any case which that juror was sworn to try.
|Previous LR 48-2 allowing a party to request a jury poll was eliminated because Fed. R. Civ. P. 48(c) now specifically allows for jury polling and sets out the procedure if there is a lack of assent or unanimity.|
