Louisiana Jury Instructions: Interested Witnesses are Competent Witnesses

The jury is not required to disregard testimony merely because the witness may be interested or biased. It is within the province of the trier of fact to place more probative value on the testimony of an interested witness than that of a disinterested witness. Rosell v. ESCO, 549 So.2d 840, 848 (La.1989).
