CHECKLIST OF ISSUES

 

 

14. (A) Counsel for each party in which a jury trial has been requested shall submit to the Court ten (10) days prior to the date of trial a check list of those issues which he believes, either as plaintiff or defendant, will be involved in the trial of the case, and further which he believes the Court should include in its charge to the jury. For example, speed, stop sign, contributory negligence, preferential right of way, last clear chance, etc.  The furnishing of same will assist the Court in its preparation for trial and its charge to the jury. It will also make counsel more aware of the issues in the case and whether or not the Court is properly covering the issues in its charge.
