Can a prosecutor ask improper questions in a civil case?

California, United States of America


The following excerpt is from The People v. Springfield, D055161, Super. Ct. No. SCD212571 (Cal. App. 2010):

Even if the prosecutor's questions were improper, we conclude the error was harmless. The trial court's instructions informing the jury that the parties' questions and arguments are not evidence precluded any reasonable likelihood the jury applied the prosecutor's questions and remarks in an objectionable fashion. (People v. Morales, supra, 25 Cal.4th at p. 44.)
