Koon v. Insurance Company, 104 U.S. 106 (1881)
Koon v. Insurance Company
104 U.S. 106
ERROR TO THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED
STATES FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
1. A stipulation that the jury, if the court be not in session when they agree upon their verdict, may sign, seal, and deliver it to the officer in charge and disperse is equivalent to an agreement that the court may open the sealed verdict in their absence and, if necessary, reduce it to proper form.
2. It is also a waiver of the right to poll the jury if they he not in court.
