Massachusetts Superior Court Rule 70:
Requests for Instructions or Rulings


Requests for instructions or rulings in trials or hearings with or without jury shall be made in writing before the closing arguments unless special leave is given to present requests later.

The question whether the court should order a verdict shall be raised by a motion, and not by a request for instructions.

(Applicable to criminal cases)
