Basically a place to post questions and answers on legal issues in a civil manner, with (hopefully) competent US attorneys answering the questions. It's not a place to debate the issues, but a place to learn more about the nuts and bolts. Statutes, applicable laws, evidentiary issues, etc.
For example, there is an ongoing misunderstanding (and one not limited to this forum by any means) with regard to circumstantial evidence. Many people believe eyewitness testimony is circumstantial and a blood bag is direct evidence, when in fact the opposite is true.
Some ground rules, per the management:
No bickering, off topic discussions, trolling, baiting, or even attempts at being humorous. Keep it pragmatic, concise and to the point. Otherwise the thread will soon lose its significance
When it digresses in long back and forths, because someone wants to be right or can't let the debate go, I'll have to do a whole lot of cleaning up.
