2.3-3 Stricken Evidence

Revised to January 1, 2008

Some evidence may have come before you in error, and at the time that occurred, I ordered that evidence stricken and told you that you must disregard it.  That evidence is not a part of this case and you may not consider that evidence in reaching your verdict.


Many lawyers and judges believe that this instruction should be given at and only at the time the evidence is stricken, to avoid emphasis on it.
