Your right...maybe they aren't. I just always assume they want to get back to their daily lives.

TO BLAGO, MY DAD USE TO TELL ME THIS, NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS!

Oddly enough, if the judge interferes with the jurors deliberations, you'd be looking at a mistrial. That's why there's the rule that the foreman has to write this judge a note to address any and all problems the jurors can't resolve. So far, this jury doesn't ask the judge questions. And, yes. ALL questions must be read aloud in court. No private communications. No "the judge just wants to step in and have lunch." Nada.

Why assume the jurors are all tied up in knots?

How long does a judge generally let a jury go before he asks them how they are doing? And at what length of time do you think this judge will ask the jury if they are having problems or not?
