U.S. v. Evanston (9th Cir. - July 3, 2011)

Jury deliberations are a black box.  We mean to keep it that way.

Which means no asking a deadlocked jury what their problem is and then giving the parties additional argument.  Don't care what some states have started to do.  Ain't doing it in federal criminal cases.  At least when there's an objection.
