Evidence Keyed to Sklansky
Southern Stone Co. v. Singer
Citation:665 F.2d 698 (5th Cir. Unit B 1982)
The plaintiff paid the defendants’ company for limestone rock but never received the materials. Therefore, the plaintiff brought action against the defendants. During trial, the district court permitted the introduction of a letter written on behalf of plaintiff’s counsel to defendant Moore. The letter purported to relate several statements made by the defendant Moore to Southern Stone’s counsel during a meeting between the parties. The statements concerned the activities of the defendant Moore and defendant Sam Singer before S&M dissolved. The plaintiff argued that the letter was admissible as an adoptive admission because Moore failed to respond to the letter.
