(d) Integrity of Deliberation Process

No court personnel will enter the jury room once deliberations have commenced without the court's permission. Any request by the jury for technical assistance will have to be made in writing, and presented to the parties for their consideration and to the court for approval, before any court staff member will be permitted to provide assistance. In the event court staff must assist with a technical problem, jurors will be escorted to another room while court staff resolves the problem.
