Use what the judge is using with the Judicial Council of California Civil Jury Instructions (CACI). LexisNexis® Matthew Bender® is proud to be the Official Publisher of the Judicial Council of California Civil Jury Instructions. This edition of CACI includes the all-new and revised jury instructions approved by the Judicial Council for civil cases.
Under California Rules of Court, Rule 2.1050(e), use of the Judicial Council instructions is strongly encouraged. If the latest edition of the jury instructions approved by the Judicial Council contains an instruction applicable to a case and the trial judge determines that the jury should be instructed on the subject, it is recommended that the judge use the Judicial Council instruction unless he or she finds that a different instruction would more accurately state the law and be understood by jurors.
