Instructions to jury; objection
Civil Practice Law & Rules (CVP) CHAPTER 8, ARTICLE 41
§ 4110-b. Instructions to jury; objection. At the close of the
evidence or at such earlier time during the trial as the court
reasonably directs, any party may file written requests that the court
instruct the jury on the law as set forth in the requests. The court,
out of the hearing of the jury, shall inform counsel of its proposed
action upon the requests prior to their arguments to the jury, but the
court shall instruct the jury after the arguments are completed. No
party may assign as error the giving or the failure to give an
instruction unless he objects thereto before the jury retires to
consider its verdict stating the matter to which he objects and the
grounds of his objection. Opportunity shall be given to make the
objection out of the hearing of the jury.
