At or near the beginning of jury selection, the Court shall permit counsel to introduce themselves and make non-argumentative remarks that inform the potential jurors of the general nature of the case.
The Commission disapproves of questions tending to lead the prospective juror or suggest partiality in the first instance, and also disapproves of that procedure in rehabilitating the prospective juror into vocalizing impartiality. Such a prospective juror should be held to be qualified only upon a truly unequivocal showing of impartiality.
For each additional juror, to be selected each side is entitled to one peremptory challenge for each defendant. Such additional peremptory challenges may be used against any regular or additional juror.
