Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 24, June 15, 2024
Rule 224 - Regulation of Order of Proof

The court may compel the plaintiff in any action to produce all evidence upon the question of the defendant's liability before calling any witness to testify solely to the extent of the injury or damages. The defendant's attorney may then move for a nonsuit. If the motion is refused, the trial shall proceed. The court may, however, allow witnesses to be called out of order if the court deems it wise so to do.
