Summary as introduced:
Jury interrogatories. Allows the court to submit written interrogatories to the jury together with forms for a general verdict in certain cases where complex issues of fact must be decided in order to arrive at a verdict. The provision does not apply to personal injury or wrongful death negligence cases unless otherwise specifically authorized by law, comparative negligence applies or all parties agree. When answers to the interrogatories are inconsistent with the verdict, the court shall either order the jury to reconsider its answers and verdict or order a new trial.
