WPI 41.05 Counterclaim—Cross-Claim—Third-Party Claim
There are multiple claims in this case. The instructions apply to all claims unless a specific instruction states that it applies only to a specific claim.
This instruction should be given after an instruction on the issues from WPI Chapter 20 (Issues in the Case).
Practitioners should carefully review the other written instructions to make sure that any instruction that applies to fewer than all claims clearly states this limitation. Special attention should be paid to the instructions setting out the issues in the case (see WPI Chapter 20) and the burden of proof (see WPI Chapter 21). See also the Comments to WPI 41.01 (Two or More Plaintiffs—Separate Claims) and WPI 41.04 (Fault to be Apportioned).
