5017. Polling the Jury Instruction No 1 Request by Plaintiff Given as Proposed Refused Withdrawn Request by Defendant Given as Modified Requested by Given on Court's Motion Judge Instruction No 1 After your verdict is read in open court, you may be asked individually to indicate whether the verdict expresses your personal vote. This is referred to as "polling" the jury and is done to ensure that at least nine jurors have agreed to each decision. The verdict form[s] that you will receive ask[s] you to answer several questions. You must vote separately on each question. Although nine or more jurors must agree on each answer, it does not have to be the same nine for each answer. Therefore, it is important for each of you to remember how you have voted on each question so that if the jury is polled, each of you will be able to answer accurately about how you voted. [Each of you will be provided a draft copy of the verdict form[s] for your use in keeping track of your votes.] ________________________________________________________________________________ New October 2008
