Idaho Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 47(q).  Juror Questioning of Witnesses.

In the discretion of the court, jurors may be instructed that they are individually permitted to submit to the court a written question directed to any witness.  If questions are submitted, the parties or counsel shall be given the opportunity to object to such questions outside the presence of the jury.  If the questions are not objectionable, the court shall read the question to the witness.  The parties or counsel may then be given the opportunity to ask follow-up questions as necessary.
