Corrections for the 2015 NC Pattern Jury Instructions Supplement Release

The School of Government discovered errors in the initial release of the 2015 pattern jury instruction supplements, which was sent in paper form to judges, prosecutors, and public defenders. The errors are not substantive but may cause confusion. They have been corrected on this website and in files shared with electronic publishers. Below are details about the corrections.

Criminal PJI 104.65 (Stipulations) is a new instruction. However, it was not noted as new with an asterisk on the supplement’s instruction sheet, and it was incorrectly dated in the instruction’s header as “REPLACEMENT JUNE 2015.” On the School’s website, and in all electronic materials, the header date has been corrected to “June 2015.” The substance of this instruction is not affected by the error or its correction. If you would like to print out these corrected pages for your hard copy volume, below are links to the instruction sheet and instruction 104.65.

Civil PJI 645.20 (Covenants not to Compete—Issue of the Existence of the Covenant) contains an incorrect date in its header of “REPLACEMENT JUNE 2014.” It should instead read “REPLACEMENT JUNE 2015.” On the School’s website, and in all electronic versions of the instructions, the header has been corrected.  The substance of this instruction is not affected by the error or its correction. If you would like to print out this instruction’s corrected pages for your hard copy volume, below is a link to a PDF file.
