1.2-12  Daily Schedule

Revised to December 1, 2007

The lawyers have informed me that they expect the evidentiary portion of the trial to take <insert estimated number of days>.  That is only an estimate, and the trial may go for a longer or shorter period of time.  I will try my best to keep you informed during the trial if any adjustments are expected. 

Once the evidence is presented and the case is presented to you for deliberations, the length of the deliberations will depend on you. 

<Inform the jury of the time trial will begin each day, and when breaks and lunch will occur.> 

During the trial, any communication you wish to make with me must be in the form of a note, which will be read to the lawyers and the parties and made a part of the record.  If you have a question, write it down and give it to the marshal or court officer who will bring it to me. 

<Conclude with any other practicalities about the conduct of the trial.>
