Impact of New FRE 807 on Hearsay Evidence: New Residual Exception
A live 90-minute CLE webinar with interactive Q&A
This CLE webinar will alert trial lawyers to the new opportunities and challenges presented by the Dec. 1, 2019, amendment to Federal Rule of Evidence 807 regarding the residual exception to the hearsay rule. The amendment relaxes some of the barriers to the admission of hearsay, and counsel must be aware of the changes.
- Substantive changes
- Deletion of interest of justice requirement
- Increased importance of trustworthiness, materiality
- Process changes
- Changes to the content and type of notice
- Good cause exception
- Trial practice pointers
The panel will review these and other notable issues:
- What were the motivating factors behind the rule changes?
- Are there pre-amendment cases that are helpful in understanding the amendment?
- What types of evidence are most likely to survive objection?
