Changes coming soon to Rule 807: Residual Rule

From the Indiana Lawyer:

"Effective Dec. 1, a package of federal rule changes is scheduled to go into effect. Per federal statute, the amendments apply to cases filed on or after Dec. 1, and otherwise to existing cases to the extent just and practicable...

A significant rewrite of Federal Rule of Evidence 807 will take effect. Rule 807 is the residual exception rule to hearsay (formerly found at Rules 803(24) and 804(b)(5). It is one of the most important Rules of Evidence, yet is overlooked or not well-known."
