Proposed Revisions to CACI Jury Instructions Available Soon

Bruce Greenlee, staff attorney for the California Judicial Council's Advisory Committee on Civil Jury Instructions, has advised us that the committee has prepared a set of proposed revisions which they plan to release for public comment today or tomorrow. The revisions will appear here.

The proposed revisions will include changes to the insurance litigation series, but we do not yet know if the committee will be proposing any revisions to the punitive damages series. Obviously, it's too soon for the proposed revisions to reflect the suggestions made by the Court of Appeal in Bullock (described here).

UPDATE (2/1/08 AT 3:14 pm): The proposed CACI revisions are now online, and they do not include any proposed revisions to the punitive damages series.
