less than 7.4 is on the state and local rules.
00:06
In this video, we're gonna talk about state local rules and
00:11
why it's important to know what your state local rules are.
00:15
So this section doesn't have slides is well, because it would be too cumbersome there, 50 different states.
00:23
There are numerous localities that have courts so to detail the rules, and the differences in the rules between every state and every locality would not be possible.
00:35
It's important, however,
00:37
that as an expert, if you're testifying in state or local court,
00:42
that you know what the rules are that are specific to your state or your locality,
00:48
and you'll find that a lot of states and a lot of localities will use the same rules as the federal rules
00:54
with minor variations. And we'll talk about some of those variations here shortly.
00:59
But
01:00
again, it's very important that you know the state and local rules for your area or for the court that you'll be testifying in
01:07
the example that I'll give. I've testified in
01:11
the Harris County courts here in Houston, Texas.
01:15
I've testified in
01:19
courts within
01:19
Sioux City, Iowa,
01:22
that was a federal district court.
01:25
I have
01:26
also testified in local,
01:29
other localities, and each one has little bitty differences to their rules or the way in which they do things or the procedure that they follow.
01:38
In this module, we discussed state and local rules.
