This casebook provides a comprehensive, problem-based approach to studying the rules of evidence. Organized around the federal rules, this casebook provides coverage of every single rule; yet, through careful case choice and editing, Professor Nicolas has produced a book that can easily be taught from cover-to-cover in as few as three semester hours. Key features of the casebook include approximately 115 in-depth problems that are designed to teach all the nuances of the rules, as well as coverage of selected state rules of evidence that differ significantly from the federal rules designed to facilitate class discussion about the policies underlying the rules of evidence. In addition, the casebook contains an enriched section on scientific evidence, in-depth coverage of the rules to electronic evidence, and a chapter on appellate review of evidentiary rulings. The revised third edition of the casebook builds on the strengths of previous editions while at the same time updating it to reflect recent developments. The text has been revised to reflect the language of the Restyled Federal Rules of Evidence as well as all substantive amendments through December 2013. The revised third edition contains edited versions of the Supreme Court¿s most recent Confrontation Clause decisions, including Melendez-Diaz v. Massachusetts, Michigan v. Bryant, Bullcoming v. New Mexico, and Williams v. Illinois. The revised third edition also includes recent decisions applying the rules of evidence to electronic evidence, including cases involving information found on social networking websites. In addition, it contains expanded coverage of state rules of evidence that differ significantly from the federal rules. Finally, in an effort to keep the book manageable in length, Professor Nicolas has--as a general rule--tried to remove a page of material for every new page added. An annual supplement is produced each year that includes the latest developments in evidence law so as to keep the textbook up-to-date between editions. A separate statutory supplement includes the federal rules of evidence and selected legislative history.

Everyone worries about privacy these days. As corporations and governments devise increasingly sophisticated data gathering tools and joining Facebook verges on obligatory, concerns over the use and abuse of personal information are undeniable. But the way privacy functions on the virtual frontier of the Internet is only a subset of the fascinating ways we work to achieve it throughout our everyday lives. In Islands of Privacy, Christena Nippert-Eng pries open the blinds, giving us an intimate view into the full range of ordinary people’s sometimes extraordinary efforts to preserve the border between themselves and the rest of the world. Packed with stories that are funny and sad, familiar and strange, Islands of Privacy tours the myriad arenas where privacy battles are fought, lost, and won. Nippert-Eng explores how we manage our secrets, our phone calls and e-mail, the perimeters of our homes, and our interactions with neighbors. She discovers that everybody practices the art of selectively concealing and disclosing information on a daily basis. This important balancing act governs a wide range of behaviors, from deciding whether to give our bosses our cell phone numbers to choosing what we carry in our wallets or purses. Violations of privacy and anxiety about how we grant it to each other also come under Nippert-Eng’s microscope as she crafts a compelling argument that successfully managing privacy is critical for successfully maintaining our relationships with each other and our selves. Roaming from the beach to the bank and from the bathroom to the bus, Nippert-Eng’s keenly observed and vividly told book gives us the skinny on how we defend our shrinking islands of privacy in the vast ocean of accessibility that surrounds us.

..".Invaluable as a quick reference for the dozens of terms, case names, and criminal concepts buzzing back and forth in (New York) court." Leonard E. Sienko, Jr. (blog post August 3, 2008). ..".A handy (work) when you can't distinguish Jenna's Law (sentencing of violent felons) from Buster's Law (animal cruelty), when a drug case witness starts muttering about hamburger helper (dilutants added to narcotics to increase volume and profits) or a prosecutor demands a blood sucker order (an involuntary blood test, often requested in DWI cases)." John Caher, New York Law Journal "If you go into criminal court and you don't know what '30.30 (a dismissal for speedy-trial violation found at CPL 30.30) or a '710.30' notice is (notice regarding evidence subject to suppression found at CPL 710.30), you are one hurting buckaroo," according to Muldoon. While not a replacement for Black's, Slanguage is an excellent complement to your toolbox. Hundreds of terms have been included and this new 5th edition updates and expands on the previous edition which was published by LexisNexis. Criminal law attorneys handling cases in New York will be at a severe disadvantage without the aid of Murray and Muldoon's work.
