AUTHORS: Glen Weissenberger; James J. Duane
Weissenberger's Federal Evidence (FEDEVD) is a comprehensive treatise on the Federal Rules of Evidence that serves as a succinct yet scholarly analysis of the Evidence Rules for judges, practitioners, and students. The authors have focused on exploring the Rules with clarity and conciseness, integrating theory with a practical understanding of how these rules operate in the real world.
Among other updates, this work contains a careful examination of the most recent changes in the Federal Rules, including those that went into effect in December of 2006. This edition also includes an extensive discussion of two landmark Supreme Court decisions, Crawford v. Washington, 541 U.S. 36 (2004), and Davis v. Washington, 126 S. Ct. 2266 (2006), which have completely rewritten the law governing the right of a criminal defendant to rely on the Confrontation Clause to obtain the exclusion of otherwise admissible hearsay.
