Title: Evidence
Author: Weninger, Robert A.
Abstract: The Fifth Circuit's decisions in the area of Evidence dealt with a variety of familiar topics, such as the discretionary power of the trial judge to exclude relevant evidence because of the countervailing considerations enumerated in Federal Rule of Evidence 403, the admissibility of character evidence under Rules 404 and 608, and the admissibility of coconspirator statements under Rule 801, to name but a few. But because cases involving these doctrines have been thoroughly discussed in recent issues of the Symposium, the survey this year focuses on significant decisions in the area of lay and expert opinion testimony, the disqualification of an expert, scientific evidence, prior consistent statements, and the application of Rule 106 in the case of the Branch Davidians who were convicted after the Waco incident.
