bailiff bulk filer business records exception









 Bailiff: An armed guard who provides security for an individual courtroom. 



Bulk filer: An individual or corporation that files a sufficiently large number of lawsuits in the Associate Circuit Courts (of my state). These people have all of their cases appear before the same judge on the same day, enabling them to process a large number of cases at a minimal cost in dollars or attorney time. 



Business records exception (to the rule against hearsay): In plain English, this rule provides that if a party can prove that certain records are (1) usually created close to the time the event they record occurred, and (2) are normally kept in a particular way, and (3) that a document they wish to produce in evidence is one of these documents that is normally kept, and (4) in this instance was kept in the usual way (5) for business purposes (rather than litigation purposes), then the documents can be used as evidence even though they are hearsay.
