In your experience, has this ever happened?

Clay

I recently served as jury foreman on a murder trial where the judge polled us by name vice juror number. As we exited the courtroom, several jurors expressed discomfort that this was done, both to be associated with the verdit (everyone requested a secret ballot) and in front of a large audience that included the defendents family and friends. Is this standard practice? All court officials had a seating map to reference juror number to names, why should the public have this information when a jury is polled??
