I tried to keep everything by category and then date.
Witness statements -- and letters of recommendation -- in many senses, "not relevant" to get STATEMENTS in writing.
Just like a police report -- you can (well, your attorney can) submit it as evidence, BUT then the police officer has to appear and testify that the police officer WROTE that report.
So any witness or letter of recommendation must be supported by THAT person appearing in court.
In my stuff with EX#2......the judge frowned upon his notion that he had 10 witnesses that needed to appear.....and when my number was smaller, that was better.
In the end, it was all threats that never materialized, meant to scare me off.
If you have any document to submit, the person who WROTE the document has to testify that they wrote what is on it and then you go from there.
I once submitted a letter from DHR here, because Dad opened a complaint against me about something that happened. Now mind you, Dad is in WV, me in AL.....incident happened in AL.....so the first question was "WHO has jurisdiction to investigate?" In the end, AL took the lead -- but even then, they didn't talk to dad. Dad talked to someone in WV, who sent the complaint to AL. AL wrote a letter saying "Nothing found" -- and I could NOT submit that as evidence that his complaint was not valide because someone from DHR did not travel to the WV court. In the end, the judge believed me because dad's testimony was second hand coming from our son and I was the ONLY one present when the incident happened. The judge knew the letter existed because I could testify that it existed, but he handed it back to me quickly in court and said that he couldn't accept the letter because no one was there to swear they wrote it.
I hope that makes sense....
