ICJI 1519 SELF-DEFENSE–DUTY TO RETREAT

INSTRUCTION NO.

In the exercise of the right of [self-defense] [defense of another], one need not retreat. One may stand one’s ground and defend [oneself] [the other person] by the use of all force and means which would appear to be necessary to a reasonable person in a similar situation and with similar knowledge[; and a person may pursue the attacker until [the person] [the other person] has been secured from danger if that course likewise appears reasonably necessary]. This law applies even though the person being [attacked] [defended] might more easily have gained safety by flight or by withdrawing from the scene.
