Rule 294. Polling the Jury (1990)


Any party shall have the right to have the jury polled. A jury is polled, by reading once to the jury collectively the general verdict, or the questions and answers thereto consecutively, and then calling the name of each juror separately and asking the juror if it is the juror's verdict. If any juror answers in the negative when the verdict is returned signed only by the presiding juror as a unanimous verdict, or if any juror shown by the juror's signature to agree to the verdict should answer in the negative, the jury shall be retired for further deliberation.

Amended by order of April 24, 1990, eff. Sept. 1, 1990.
