2.3-2 Limiting Instructions on Evidence

Revised to January 1, 2008

You will recall that I have ruled that some testimony and evidence have been allowed for a limited purpose only.  Any testimony or evidence which I identified as being received for a limited purpose, you will consider only as it relates to the limited issue for which it was allowed, and you shall not consider such testimony and evidence in finding any other facts as to any other issue.

Optional:
You will recall that during the testimony of <name of witness> I permitted the introduction of <exhibit/evidence> as to <issue> and instructed you that you could use that evidence, to the extent that you find it should be given weight, only as to that issue.  Any other use of that testimony would be improper.

Authority

Smith v. Greenwich, 278 Conn. 428, 451-52 (2006).
