Wigmore.GaWy_650X400

The scholar whose book Wigmore On Evidence is an often cited legal treatise, John Henry Wigmore was born on this date in 1863.   Our playlist of evidentiary rules of hearsay tunes will be offered for your consideration on Crosscurrents, 3/04 at 8 am.

    You are invited to tune in at 8 am Alaska Time Monday the 4th of March on air or through the net http://www.krnn.org

     Here is a show for anybody who is studying for the Bar Exam, or who has in the past done so.  Yes, the Rules of Evidence meet the craziness of our radio show.  As an “offer of proof” and in an effort to avoid any “objections”… we submit a play list to include:

Rule 803. Exceptions to the Rule Against Hearsay

The following are not excluded by the rule against hearsay, regardless of whether the declarant is available as a witness:

(1) Present Sense Impression. I FEEL GOOD.  SAD AND LONELY FEELING .

(2) Excited Utterance.   I GET SO EXCITED.  IM SO EXCITED. 

(3Then-Existing Mental, Emotional, or Physical Condition. COUNTRY STATE OF MIND.  THIS STATE OF MIND

(4) Statement Made for Medical Diagnosis or TreatmentDONT CALL NO AMBULANCE.  EMERGENCY CALL.

(5) Recorded Recollection.  AMNESIA.  ROCK AND ROLL NEVER FORGETS 

(6) Records of a Regularly Conducted Activity. DO IT AGAIN.  HERE IT GOES AGAIN 

As the expression goes in legal circles:

…may it please the court????
