4.16 CHARTS AND SUMMARIES IN EVIDENCE

Certain charts and summaries have been admitted in evidence. Charts and summaries are only as good as the underlying supporting material. You should, therefore, give them only such weight as you think the underlying material deserves.

Comment

See Fed. R. Evid. 1006.

Use this instruction when charts and summaries are admitted in evidence. If charts and summaries are not admitted in evidence, use Instruction 4.15 (Summaries Not Received in Evidence).

This instruction may be unnecessary if there is no dispute as to the accuracy of the chart or summary.
