Rumor has it…there are times when the evidence you are seeking to introduce in court does not come from a witness there in court, but by someone who heard something that someone else said. If you are seeking to introduce this evidence to prove the truth of what was heard, then what you have is hearsay.  Contrary to what you may have heard, hearsay isn’t always inadmissible, and sometimes, hearsay isn’t even (technically) hearsay.  As usual, it depends – on whether the speaker is available, when and why they were speaking, and what motivated that statement.

On this week’s installment, Rebecca and Steve navigate the hearsay rule, its exceptions, and the exceptions to those exceptions to provide insight on precisely when out of court statements can be deemed admissible and when a court should refuse to play telephone.
