2.4-3 Stipulations/Undisputed Facts

Revised to January 1, 2008

Any facts to which the parties have stipulated, either in writing or orally during the course of the trial, you will treat as proven.  Similarly, if you have been told in open court that a party has agreed not to dispute certain evidence presented by the other, you will treat that evidence as proven as well.  It is still up to you to decide what weight or importance those facts or evidence have, if any, in deciding the issues in the case.

Authority

Rudder v. Mamanasco Lake Park Assn., Inc., 93 Conn. App. 759, 769 (2006) (judicial admission dispenses with production of evidence by opposing party as to fact admitted, and is conclusive upon party making it); Kelley v. Tomas, 66 Conn. App. 146, 156 (2001) (formal stipulation of facts constitutes judicial admission); Speed v. DeLibero, 23 Conn. App. 437, 440 (jury determines weight and effect to be given evidence), cert. denied, 216 Conn. 832 (1990).
