WPI 6.12.01 Questions by Jury Addressed to Court
This former instruction was designed to be used in the middle of deliberations if the jurors indicated they had a question to ask the court but did not know how to submit the question. Because jurors should be instructed about these procedures before they begin deliberating, these issues are now addressed as part of WPI 1.08 (Concluding Instruction—For General Verdict) and WPI 1.11 (Concluding Instruction—For Special Verdict).
The appropriate procedures to follow when responding to a deliberating jury's question are addressed in CR 51(i) and CRLJ 51(i).
