ABI's Quick Evidence Handbook
ABI's Quick Evidence Handbook is a practical and highly accessible primer on the mechanics of admitting (or excluding) evidence in bankruptcy cases. Written by Evan Slavitt (AVX Corp.), an experienced litigator and past lecturer at ABI's Litigation Skills Program, the new book is especially valuable for new and young practitioners because it spells out what counsel needs to say to get documents admitted, experts qualified and witness testimony into the record. The text covers an overview of the types of evidence (direct, cross-examination, documents, experts and motions in Limine) with illustrations on how to get documents and testimony into the record. Also treated are the basics of the hearsay rules that most frequently occur in bankruptcy litigation. An appendix provides a wealth of other practical resources.
