[Name of defendant] must prove the amount by which future damages should be reduced to present value. To find present cash value, you must determine the amount of money that, if reasonably invested today, will provide [name of plaintiff] with the amount of [his/her/its] future damages. [You may consider expert testimony in determining the present cash value of future [economic] damages.] [[You must [use the interest rate of __ percent/ [and] [specify other stipulated information]] as agreed to by the parties in determining the present cash value of future [economic] damages.] _____________________________________________________________________________ New September 2003; Revised April 2008; Revised and renumbered from former CACI No. 3904 December 2010; Revised June 2013
