In a jury trial, why does the judge need to see the verdict before the jury foreman reads it aloud?

Video Transcription:

In a jury trial the role of the court and the role of the jury are equally defined. However they do not overlap. The role of the judge is to make sure that the jury applies the appropriate law. The role of the jury is to apply that law. When the court reviews the jury verdict prior to publishing the verdict, the court is reviewing the verdict form for legal sufficiency.
