LLARLJ 7 Contact with jurors No litigant or attorney shall have any contact with any venire person or juror pending discharge of the jury. Any requests by a litigant or an attorney for post-trial communication shall be conveyed to the juror through the bailiff.

The bailiff shall advise the juror that there is no obligation to discuss any matter with the requesting party. If the juror agrees to meet with the requesting party, the conversation shall occur in the courtroom. The bailiff shall be present to insure that the juror is not challenged, threatened, or harangued, and that such conversation will not improperly influence the juror in any future trial. Questions shall be limited to the basis of the jury's decision, critiques of counsel's performance, and any alleged juror impropriety. No litigant or any attorney shall enter the jury room corridor or any jury room without explicit authorization from the bailiff. Effective Date: 9/01/06
