RE: Rule 31, N.D.R.Crim.P.; Verdict
Rule 31(d), Fed.R.Crim.P., was amended effective December 1, 1998. The amendment requires jurors to be polled individually when polling is requested, or when polling is directed sua sponte by the court. See Committee Note, Rule 31, Fed.R.Crim.P.
Rule 31(d), N.D.R.Civ.P., is patterned after the federal rule. Should North Dakota's rule be amended to follow the 1998 federal amendment?
