Advisory Committee Notes

Paragraph (l). The committee recommends amending paragraph (l) to establish the right of jurors to take notes and to have those notes with them during deliberations. The committee recommends removing depositions from the paragraph not in order to permit the jurors to have depositions but to recognize that depositions are not evidence. Depositions read into evidence will be treated as any other oral testimony. These amendments and similar amendments to the Rules of Civil Procedure will make the two provisions identical.
