EXPERT TESTIMONY; EVALUATION BY JURY OF ANSWER TO HYPOTHETICAL QUESTION

A question has been asked in which an expert witness was told to assume that certain facts were true and to give an opinion based upon that assumption. This is called a hypothetical question. If any fact assumed in the question has not been established by the evidence, you should determine the effect of that omission upon the value of the opinion.
