This statutory and case supplement incorporates the latest statutory changes and proposed revisions and the most recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions bearing on evidence law. The statutory component of this volume includes proposals to amend Rule 803(16) and to add two new authentication rules, 902(13) and 902(14). These changes are set to take effect on December 1, 2017. Also included is a newly proposed revision of Rule 807, recently released for public comment and not set to take hold before December 1, 2019. The Advisory Committee's Notes to all these proposed changes appear along with explanatory editor's notes. The statutory component also presents a side-by-side reprinting of the older (pre-2011), unrestyled Federal Rules of Evidence and the newly restyled rules to allow for ready comparison. Editor's notes point out those areas where the restyling project, contrary to its authors' claimed intentions, worked substantive changes in the rules. The case supplement analyzes the Supreme Court's 2017 decision in Pe�a-Rodriguez v. Colorado, in which the Court ruled that the Sixth Amendment's guarantee of an impartial jury overcomes Rule 606(b) and its state-law equivalents and permits defendants to present juror testimony about certain expressions of ethnic or racial bias in the jury room. The supplement addresses the Court's related 2014 ruling in Warger v. Shauers as well as its 2015 decision in Ohio v. Clark and 2013 ruling in Salinas v. Texas. Clark addresses whether the admission against the defendant of a young child's allegation of abuse, made out of court and offered in lieu of the child's testimony at trial, violated the defendant's confrontation right. And Salinas examines the prosecution's use in its case-in-chief of a suspect's silence in response to noncustodial police questioning.

The Seventh Edition of this course book revises only slightly the organization familiar to its many users, but increases the attention paid to informal processes, current controversies, and the push for open government. Following an introduction to the history, institutional context, and theory of administrative law, students are exposed to four main topics: the political control of administration by Congress and the executive branch; agency processes for adjudication and rulemaking; government access to and required disclosure of information; and judicial remedies for official illegality. Doctrinal analysis is enriched by case studies of the law in action in particular contexts.

This statutory and case supplement incorporates the newly restyled Federal Rules of Evidence, along with the relevant Advisory Committee's Notes. A side-by-side reprinting of the unrestyled and restyled Rules allows for ready comparison. Editor's notes point out those areas where the restyling project, contrary to its authors' claimed intentions, worked substantive changes in the Rules. This volume also includes proposed amendments to Rules 801(d)(1)(B), 803(6), 803(7), 803(8), and 803(10), together with Advisory Committee's Notes and explanatory editor's notes. A brief case supplement analyzes and incorporates the Supreme Court's ruling in Salinas v. Texas, 133 S. Ct. 2174 (June 17, 2013), which addresses the prosecution's use during its case-in-chief of a suspect's silence in response to noncustodial police questioning. Those who teach with Fisher's Evidence (3d ed. 2013) will benefit from paginated cross-references between the casebook and this rulebook. Students will find it easy to work in tandem with the two sources.
