Ind. Decisions - More on "Judge Tinder finds his own opinion persuasive"
Updating this ILB entry from this morning, a long-time reader writes:
In my new role as "gadfly" I must take issue with your [earlier reader's] comments about this case. I agree that it is of great interest to evidence law "groupies", but it is also a remarkable use of "set theory" and "logic" to parse out the links of hearsay, "totem pole" hearsay, and "business records". This case should be mandatory reading for every lawyer who works in a court room, and every law student.ILB: The ruling, again, is yesterday's 7th Circuit opinion by Judge Tinder in the case of Jordan v. Binns.
And, as noted by Judge Tinder, the horrible circumstances of the case could not overcome the intricacy of the oft lamented "hearsay rule".
I would suggest you tell your readers this is a "must read".
