Michael Berman, Esq., of Rifkin, Livingston, Levitan & Silver, LLC, argued to excluded email messages and a voice mail at the CT Summation Best Practices Summit, held in Washington, DC on May 20th, 2008.
The Best Practices Summit included a mock motion in limine hearing. In the fictional case, the Plaintiffs attempted to prove breach of contract and break of fiduciary duty with email messages, native file contracts and a voice mail. The Defendants sought to exclude these exhibits on admissibility grounds.
