In a civil case, what is the proper way to have evidence excluded due to a violation of federal law in obtaining said evidence by opposing party witness?
Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.

To get any evidence excluded you file a Motion to Quash the evidence and you would include your proof the evidence was illegally obtained and ask the court to exclude the evidence from the trial.
