RULE 6.8 QUESTIONING BY JURY
In a civil case, a trial court may allow a juror to submit a question for a witness through the judge. The juror shall submit the question in writing through appropriate court personnel. Upon receipt of such a written question, the court shall review the propriety of the question with counsel, on the record outside the hearing of the jury. The court shall then ask the question, in which case all parties shall have the opportunity to examine the matters touched upon by the question; or shall tell the jury that the law prevented the question from being asked.
Rule 6.8 was adopted, effective March 1, 1998.
