14. Compromise Verdicts
1. Juries/Compromise Verdict: An instruction that stated:
"You must determine the fair market value of the subject property only from the
opinions of the witnesses.... you may not find the market value of the subject
property to be either less than or more than that testified to by the witnesses..."
apparently induced the jury to think that it could not come to a compromise verdict,
but had to pick one of the valuations. The judgment, however, was affirmed. Pappas
