Idaho Court Administrative Rule 66. Trial Interruptions - Jury Deliberations.

Exceptions may be made to this rule for one-day trials, deliberations continued with the consent of the jury, or other unique circumstances. However, court calendar considerations shall not be a basis to exceed normal hours of jury service.
