Advice for Young Lawyers: Deposition: Hearsay in Business Records
No, just because it's in a business record doesn't mean everything that record says can come into evidence.
Ledger says employee Jones was paid $500 in cash on June 5, 2005.
Note in employer's file (maintained in the regular course of business & brought within exception to hearsay rule) says "Darlene says she paid employee Jones $500 in cash on June 5, 2005."
Why does double hearsay matter in a deposition?
Because if you don't know its double hearsay, you might not track down "Darlene" or find another way to prove that employee Jones was paid $500 in cash on June 5, 2005.
