Evidence is, of course, at the heart of our trial process. In fact, we learned this in Trial Practice 101. So when did it become acceptable to eschew this evidence-based process that we have abided by since our nation’s founding? Last week, apparently, as our nation witnessed a profound aberration of this process. We learned that, in the impeachment context, a trial may proceed without witness testimony.

“Change is the law of life.” - John F. Kennedy Happy Holidays! It’s hard to believe another MCBA holiday party has come and gone. Time sometimes passes swiftly and before you know it, your kids are far older than you ever imagined, you barely recognize that person in the mirror and the Legislature has completely rewritten the statute you’ve spent the last ten years interpreting. Is each of those changes good? Bad? Does it have to be one or the other?
