This video presentation by Judge Curtis M. Fiorini is designed to help lawyers more easily recognize avoidable evidentiary issues and overcome those unexpected objections. A case is ultimately won or lost depending on the evidence presented. Judge Fiorini will share his views of common mistakes and misunderstandings of the Evidence Code he sees on a regular basis. Ever wonder why your objection was overruled or your opponent’s objection to your question was sustained? Many times in the heat of battle, a judge will not give an explanation and lawyers are left to wonder why.
It will focus primarily on some of the more technical requirements of common hearsay exceptions and how to identify and effectively meet them. Judge Fiorini will share practical approaches to addressing some common hearsay obstacles.
