              Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:

A judge in his or her discretion for good cause may, after a verdict is rendered, disallow a meeting between the jurors and the attorneys for the litigants and may excuse a juror or jurors from such a meeting, and a judge may control the conduct of the meeting.
