Business Records and Hearsay Objections, court procedure? I would like to ask a procedural question. If a plaintiff attempts to introduce a “business record”, and the defense objects that it is not qualify as a business record, but the plaintiff has the required support for admitting said business records...how would this typically be handled in a courtroom? Would the judge sustain the defense’s objection, but then offer the plaintiff an opportunity to demonstrate compliance with a business records exception? Is there such a thing as 'tentatively sustained'? Or would the judge defer on a ruling? I guess what I'm trying to figure out is...how could a custodian validate a business record at trial if the business record can’t be introduced until it’s been validated by the custodian...I know there must be a break in this circuit somewhere. Thanks!
