Customer Question

If court ordered redaction of exhibits in limine, but the exhibits were offered and received, however an exhibit was not redacted, can the judge allow redaction after it has been received?

Thank you for your question. Please allow me to assist you with your concerns.

The answer is 'yes', a judge can either choose to refuse to allow the exhibit in outright based on the lack of the redaction, or request that the exhibit not be viewed until the modifications are made to the evidence as ordered. However the opposing party must make a timely objection to the initial offer because if the opposing party fails to contest, then the evidence is considered acceptable 'as-is' and is generally no longer able to be removed or rescinded, or otherwise modified or redacted. This is less a case law issue and more of an evidentiary issue where a judge is generally given deference based on his order her ruling once the evidence was accepted.

Good luck.
