they were taken out of my private files with out asking permission


what are legal means? Is it ethical for the defendant and lawyer to colaberate likk this

LADY LAWYER : No, the documents should not be admitted into evidence if they were stolen from your personal files. You need to make a motion to strike to introduction of these documents into evidence and tell the judge in your motion that the documents were stolen from you and were not obtained by legal means.
