amendments to jury instructions and court rules

The Oklahoma Supreme Court has approved modifications to the Oklahoma Uniform Jury Instructions, the Rules for District Courts, and the Oklahoma Supreme Court Rules.  Most notably, these amendments now specifically address the use of jury questionnaires.  In addition, the Court has approved amendments to verdict forms, and jury instructions for false representation, nondisclosure or concealment, wrongful discharge, employment based discrimination, exemplary damages, defamation, and trade secrets.
