Abstract

This contribution to a symposium on Federal Rule of Evidence 502 tries to identify the sorts of laments that sometimes befall the rulemakers: (1) Judges don’t follow our rules; (2) Lawyers don’t read our rules; and (3) We nevertheless must deal with overstated opposition to make even modest rule changes.
