This stimulating casebook presents the study of evidence in the context of a trial. It provides transcript-style problems in which lawyers present evidence and argue evidentiary points, and a trial judge is called on to rule. Special effort has been made to update and amplify those problems. Substantive changes for the Fifth Edition include interesting innovations by courts on questions of character evidence and expert testimony; amendments to the Federal Rules of Evidence; issues involving the admissibility of electronic evidence; and Supreme Court developments on the right to confrontation.

Ideas Evidence and Method

Graciela De Pierris presents a novel interpretation of the relationship between skepticism and naturalism in Hume's epistemology, and a new appraisal of Hume's place within early modern thought. Whereas a dominant trend in recent Hume scholarship maintains that there are no skeptical arguments concerning causation and induction in Book I, Part III of the Treatise, Graciela De Pierris presents a detailed reading of the skeptical argument she finds there and how this argument initiates a train of skeptical reasoning that begins in Part III and culminates in Part IV. This reasoning is framed by Hume's version of the modern theory of ideas developed by Descartes and Locke. The skeptical implications of this theory, however, do not arise, as in traditional interpretations of Hume's skepticism, from the 'veil of perception.' They arise from Hume's elaboration of a presentational-phenomenological model of ultimate evidence, according to which there is always a justificatory gap between what is or has been immediately presented to the mind and any ideas that go beyond it. This happens, paradigmatically, in the causal-inductive inference, and, as De Pierris argues, in demonstrative inference as well. Yet, in spite of his firm commitment to radical skepticism, Hume also accepts the naturalistic standpoint of science and common life, and he does so, on the novel interpretation presented here, because of an equally firm commitment to Newtonian science in general and the Newtonian inductive method in particular. Hume defends the Newtonian method (against the mechanical philosophy) while simultaneously rejecting all attempts (including those of the Newtonians) to find a place for the supernatural within our understanding of nature.

So that when opposing counsel asks your witness, “Where were you the night of December 19, and what exactly were you doing?” you say, “Objection, Your Honor. Compound question.” Pick up California Evidence Code with Objections and never again be at a loss for words.
