Civil: Negligence

Proceedings below: The jury found in favor of defendant. Appellant filed a Petition to Bypass the Court of Appeals which was granted by the Nebraska Supreme Court.

Issues: The district court erred in instructing the jury in accordance with NJI2d Civ. 8.26 as it is not compatible with Nebraska comparative fault law found at Neb. Rev. Stat. § 25-21,185.09 (Reissue 2008).

Cross-Appeal: The district court erred in failing to instruct consistent with NJI2d Civ. 3.01 as requested as it is a correct statement of law.
