Mister v. Northeast Illinois Commuter R.R. Corp., No, 08-2234

By FindLaw Staff on July 09, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

District court judgment finding a handwritten report and accompanying testimony inadmissible is affirmed where: 1) the court erred when it did not classify the report as an admission by a party opponent under Federal Rule of Evidence 801(d)(2)(D); and 2) the court did not abuse its discretion when it found the record inadmissible under Rule 403, as the report was unreliable based on the multiple levels of hearsay and lack of precise factual statements.
