4.5-1  Introduction to General Damages

Revised to January 1, 2008

Note:  There are no instructions for equitable forms of relief such as specific performance and rescission, because those are for the court, not the jury, to determine. 

The instructions for elements of liability are not repeated here.  See preceding sections for instructions on liability components.

It is recommended that the court use jury interrogatories and a verdict form in conjunction with giving these instructions.  Where helpful, the court should vary these instructions to make specific reference to the verdict form and interrogatories.
