RULE 704. OPINION ON ULTIMATE ISSUE
Testimony in the form of an opinion or inference otherwise admissible is not objectionable because it embraces an ultimate issue to be decided by the trier of fact.
This rule is taken from Rule 704 of the Federal Rules of Evidence. It should be noted that this rule applies to the opinions of lay witnesses, whenever admissible, as well as to opinions of experts.
