Product details

This volume is specially intended for trial lawyers and federal district and magistrate judges who try cases in federal court. It is a trial book, designed to ease the task of dealing with evidence issues under the fierce time constraints and pressures that trials, especially jury trials, place on all participants. This volume attempts to identify the evidence issues that arise with some frequency in federal civil and criminal trials. With respect to each issue, there are suggestions as to what the responsibility is of (1) a lawyer who objects to evidence, (2) a lawyer who overcomes an objection, (3) a lawyer whose evidence is excluded, and (4) a trial judge who wants to make a solid record and to be certain that the jury is properly instructed.

The Twelfth Edition features:

•  Coverage of recent amendments to the Federal Rules of Evidence, including amendments to Rule 807 (residual exception to hearsay) taking effect on December 1, 2019.
•  In Chapter 4, Relevance and Related Matters, new discussion of the proposed amendment to Federal Rule 404(b) (Other Crimes, Wrongs, or Acts).
•  In Chapter 6, Direct and Cross-Examination of Witnesses; Impeachment and Rehabilitation, a new jury instruction for use when a party claims the privilege against self-incrimination.
•  In Chapter 9, Authentication and Identification, new jury instructions relating to authentication of domestic or foreign business records and records generated by an electronic process or system.
