1 hour MCLE credit
Viewing Time: 60 minutes
Speaker: Hon. Jill Talley, Wm. R. Ridgeway Family Relations Courthouse, Sacramento, CA
Judge Jill Talley provides an evidentiary pathway to admitting text messages and emails at trial in family law disputes. Family law disputes create unique challenges in that the parties will often need to co-parent or communicate after the trial. Therefore, counsel has the added burden of looking at the impact of the evidence beyond just the immediate trial or win. This seminar covers some common mistakes that are made in family law disputes that erode the trust of the parties, which may impact their future relationship.
While this seminar is geared to family law cases, the fundamentals of evidence discussed are applicable to all trials. It provides an update on case law addressing the admissibility of electronic evidence, common pitfalls, and best practices.
