Brevity is the Soul of Wit

Daniel Patrick Moynihan is a name that may be familiar to most. He was a United States Cabinet official, the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, and a United States Senator from New York.

Admissions by Party Opponents vs. Declarations Against Interests

In my last blog, I wrote of the rule pertaining to admissions of party opponents, 801(d)(2) of the Federal Rules of Evidence and the Massachusetts Guide to Evidence. Let’s contrast that to Rule 804(b)(3)’s declarations against interests exception. The most fundamental difference between these two exceptions is that in the first exception the declarant must Read More

When a forty-six year old Massachusetts boiler repairman received a phone call from a condominium complex to repair a boiler unit, he had no idea that his life was about to change.
