GlanceCharts’ Quick Guide to Federal Civil Evidence takes the user step-by-step through the analytical steps necessary to introduce testimony, documents, tangible items or other evidence in a Federal civil court case. Initially the chart takes the user through preliminary considerations that set the stage for the introduction of evidence. Next, attention turns to the purpose for introducing evidence, be it relevance to the issues or because it goes to the credibility of a witness.
Next, the chart introduces the user to twin evidence filters: prejudice considerations and privilege which may filter out otherwise relevant evidence. Finally, the chart turns to a detailed examination of the evidentiary doctrines which govern the admission of lay and expert testimony as well as documentary or tangible items.
