emphasizing facts

emphasizing facts
A jury instruction is said to emphasize facts which may contain sufficient facts to authorize a verdict, but nevertheless some fact or facts are selected from the evidence and mentioned in such a way as to indicate to the jury that they have especial importance when that is not justified. Robinson v. Ross, Mo., 47 S.W.2d 122, 125
