2.2-1 Corporation or Other Entity as a Party

Revised to January 1, 2008

You have heard that one of the parties in this lawsuit is a person and the other is a corporation [or other entity].  A corporation is an entity created by the law.  All parties are equal before the law.

The mere fact that one of the parties is a natural person and one is a creation of the law should not play any part in your deliberations.  Rather, you must assess the claims and defenses of all parties without regard to their status and treat all parties in an equal and unbiased fashion.


This charge may be adapted to accommodate particular entities, such as state agencies, government subdivisions (e.g. municipality), partnerships or the like.
