Chapter 21. Comparative Fault—
General Verdict
AMI 2110 Comparative Negligence or Fault—Multiple Claims—Joint Tortfeasors—No Imputed Negligence
After the passage of the Civil Justice Reform Act of 2003, and particularly Ark. Code Ann. § 16-55-201, which abolished joint and several liability in favor of several liability, the Committee believes that in actions for personal injury, medical injury, property damage, or wrongful death, claims against multiple defendants should not be submitted on general verdicts. AMI 2110 has consequently been removed from the Arkansas Model Instructions. For an analysis of the current law governing tort claims against multiple defendants, see the part entitled “Use of AMI” at the beginning of this manual.
