I was wondering how hearsay applies to recordings. If one party in a phone conversation admits to doing something irresponsible involving a child, say feeding a kid ice cream every night for dinner (real wrongdoing is more serious) and the other party says yes the child says you also fed him candy bars, can the recording be admitted? Is there an exclusion to the hearsay rule involving recordings? Can the judge listen to the whole thing but discount the hearsay part and consider the admissions only as fact? This recording is a highly relevant, make or break the ruling, recording.
