SEQ CHAPTER \h \r 1CR05-011 12/12/03




Your duty is to determine the facts from the evidence, but you must accept the law that I give you in these instructions.  The evidence is the oral testimony of the witnesses, and the exhibits that have been admitted [and the stipulations].  Any testimony which I have stricken from the record or excluded from the case is not evidence, and the comments and arguments of the attorneys are not evidence.  Furthermore, I do not intend to indicate one way or another as to how you should decide this case, based on any rulings I have made, or anything I have said.  Also, attorneys have a duty to object to questions or answers which they believe are not admissible.  You may not hold it against either side if an attorney feels it is necessary to make objections.
