Best Evidence Rule
Secondary evidence is inadmissible if the "best evidence" is available.
"Parole (Oral) Evidence" is not admissible to modify the terms of a written instrument.
"Hearsay Evidence" is not generally admissible, even though it may be relevant to the case.
Determine whether the evidence is truly relevant, which will be based on the facts alleged in the case, and the state code of evidence. Such relevant evidence may either be used to support or refute allegations.
