After discovering that you have a serious injury following your surgery, you decide that it is time to investigate whether medical malpractice is the cause.

You find out that you do have a valid claim.

The doctor failed to notice an obvious error with the surgery and did nothing to repair the injury.

Through your attorney you file a law suit in the circuit court for Baltimore City.

A jury of six people are empanelled to hear the facts of the case.

After a week of trial the jury is ready to come back with a verdict in the case.

With that said, you are now wondering will the jury give the verdict to the judge and just leave or does the verdict have to be given in open court?

The answer to the question is that the verdict has to be given in open court.

Afterwards, either side in the case, or the court can elect to poll the jury.
