This one-volume treatise provides clear and concise explanations for the application and practical effect of each Rule of Evidence--a valuable resource for any Evidence student. This treatise was recently cited as "the authoritative text" on federal evidence law (United States v. Schlesinger, 372 F. Supp. 2d 711, 720 (E.D.N.Y. 2005)). Annually supplemented and complete, this edition contains a careful examination of the most recent changes in the Federal Rules. This edition includes a detailed line-by-line summary and analysis of the newest Federal Rule of Evidence, Rule 502, which sets forth certain important new limitations on the waiver of the attorney-client privilege and work product protection. It also discusses the Supreme Court's latest decision in Kansas v. Ventris (2009), concerning the extent to which a witness may be impeached with prior inconsistent statements that were obtained in violation of witness's constitutional rights. And of course it includes an extensive discussion of four landmark Supreme Court decisions, Crawford v. Washington (2004), Davis v. Washington (2006), Whorton v. Bockting(2007), and Giles v. California (2008), 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.

This statutory and case supplement incorporates the latest statutory changes and proposed revisions and the most recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions bearing on evidence law. The statutory component of this volume includes proposals to amend Rule 803(16) and to add two new authentication rules, 902(13) and 902(14). These changes are set to take effect on December 1, 2017. Also included is a newly proposed revision of Rule 807, recently released for public comment and not set to take hold before December 1, 2019. The Advisory Committee's Notes to all these proposed changes appear along with explanatory editor's notes. The statutory component also presents a side-by-side reprinting of the older (pre-2011), unrestyled Federal Rules of Evidence and the newly restyled rules to allow for ready comparison. Editor's notes point out those areas where the restyling project, contrary to its authors' claimed intentions, worked substantive changes in the rules. The case supplement analyzes the Supreme Court's 2017 decision in Pe�a-Rodriguez v. Colorado, in which the Court ruled that the Sixth Amendment's guarantee of an impartial jury overcomes Rule 606(b) and its state-law equivalents and permits defendants to present juror testimony about certain expressions of ethnic or racial bias in the jury room. The supplement addresses the Court's related 2014 ruling in Warger v. Shauers as well as its 2015 decision in Ohio v. Clark and 2013 ruling in Salinas v. Texas. Clark addresses whether the admission against the defendant of a young child's allegation of abuse, made out of court and offered in lieu of the child's testimony at trial, violated the defendant's confrontation right. And Salinas examines the prosecution's use in its case-in-chief of a suspect's silence in response to noncustodial police questioning.
This handbook includes the text of the Federal Rules of Evidence, including amendments in effect December 1, 2016 (absent Congressional action). The handbook also includes selected legislative history, the Advisory Committee Notes to the Rules and to the amendments to the Federal Rules of Evidence. A final section includes Proposed Federal Rules of Evidence Relating to Privilege with Advisory Committee Notes.
