Celeste Brecht, together with a group of peers, contributed to a collection of proposed Model Jury Instructions published by the ABA. Each chapter provides an overview of the current state of the law, including the pivotal cases and a discussion of the practical issues to consider. Where applicable, the chapters provide model instructions based upon both the Restatement (Second) and Restatement (Third) of Torts so that readers can easily select the instruction applicable to their jurisdiction.
Topics are divided into chapters covering:
- General/introductory instructions
- Strict product liability
- Warranty liability and misrepresentations
- Defense issues
- Special instructions
- Verdict form
