Christine Webber to Speak on Evidence in Summary Judgment v. Trial Day

2022 NELA Annual Convention

July 2, 2022

Christine E. Webber will speak at the 2022 NELA Annual Convention on Saturday, July 2, 2022 (3:45 – 5:00 p.m. PST) at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis. This is an in-person CLE program for plaintiff attorneys.

Ms. Webber’s panel discussion, “Evidence in Summary Judgment v. Trial Day,” will focus on how to best determine what evidence to present at trial. Documents and witness statements or depositions you relied upon in summary judgment are likely to be on your exhibit list or witness list for trial too, but even with what is, at core, the same evidence, you still have to consider issues that may arise in using that evidence at trial.

Among other things, the panelists will discuss:

  • Moving from citing deposition excerpts on summary judgment to using deposition designations instead of live testimony at trial.
  • Expert testimony. Moving from report at summary judgment to live testimony at trial.
  • Objections at trial that the business record exception is not available, even if such an argument was not raised on summary judgment briefing.
  • Evidentiary challenges over website material Defendant may not have bothered to raise at summary judgment.
