AMI 1101 Willful or Wanton Conduct—Definition
When I use the expression “willful or wanton conduct” I mean a course of action which shows an actual or deliberate intention to harm or which, if not intentional, shows an utter indifference to or conscious disregard for the safety of others.
NOTE ON USE
This instruction should precede AMI 1102, 1103, and 1107.
