(Rule 129,Sec.4)

Judicial Admissions
Are those so made in the pleadings filed or in the progress of a trial.

Extrajudicial Admissions
Are those made out of court, or in a judicial proceeding other than
the one under consideration.

Judicial admission may be contradicted only by showing that:
1. It was made through palpable mistake;
2. No such admission was made.

Extrajudicial admissions or other admissions are, as a rule and where
elements of estoppel are not present, disputable.

A judicial admission may be oral as a verbal waiver of proof made in
open court, a withdrawal of a contention or a disclosure made before
the court, or an admission made by a witness in the course of his
testimony or deposition, or may be in writing as in pleading, bill of
particulars, stipulation of facts, request for admission, or a
judicial admission contained in an affidavit…

   judicial notice of any matter and allow the parties to be heard
   thereon on its own initiative or on request of a party.

   announce its intention to take judicial notice of any matter that
   is decisive of a material issue in the case and allow the parties
   to be heard thereon on its own initiative or on request of a party.

The purpose of the hearing is not for the presentation of evidence
but to afford the parties reasonable opportunity to present
information relevant to the proprietary of taking such judicial
notice or to the tenor of the matter to be noticed.

What stage may the court take judicial notice of a fact?
1. During trial

A Distinction is made between judicial notice taken during trial and
that taken after trial but before judgment or on appe…

Judicial Notice When Discretionary

Image
Judicial Notice When Discretionary


When Discretionary
1. Matters of public knowledge
2. Matters capable of unquestionable demonstration
3. Matters which ought to be known to judges because of their
   judicial functions.

The mere personal knowledge of the judge is not the judicial knowledge
of the court.

Judicial cognizance is taken only of those matters which are commonly
known.

It is not essential that matters of judicial cognizance be actually
known to the judge if the subject is proper for judicial knowledge,
the judge may at his discretion, inform himself in any way which may
seem best to him, and act accordingly.

The doctrine of judicial notice rests on the wisdom and discretion of
the courts. The power to take judicial notice is to be exercised by
courts with caution, care must be taken that the requisite notoriety
exists and every reasonable doubt upon the subject should be promptly
resolved in the negative.

Foreign laws may not be taken judicial notice of and have to be proved

Relevancy; Collateral Matters

Relevancy; Collateral Matters







Evidence must have such a relation to the fact in issue as to induce
belief in its existence or non-existence.

Evidence on collateral matters shall not be allowed, except when it
tends in any reasonable degree to establish the probability or
improbability of the fact in issue.

The rules prohibit the admission of irrelevant collateral facts only.

Circumstantial evidence is legal evidence and if sufficient, can
sustain a judgment. Circumstantial evidence is evidence of relevant
collateral facts.

Facts Relevant To The Issue
   - are those facts which render the probable existence or
     non-existence of a fact in issue, or some other relevant fact.

The effect of the pleadings is that they help in determining whether
the evidence offered is relevant to the case, for it is a familiar
proposition that the evidence must be confined to the facts put in
issue by the pleadings.

Relevance
   - Evidence has such a relation to the fact in issue as to induce

Affidavit of Recantation

Image
Affidavit of Recantation








On the probative value of an affidavit of recantation, courts look
with disfavor upon recantations because they can easily be secured
from witnesses, usually through intimidation or for a monetary
consideration.

Recanted testimony is exceedingly unreliable. There is always the
probability that it will be repudiated.
(Molina vs. People. 259 SCRA 138)

Example Question 1998 Bar Examination

      If the accused on the witness stand repeats his earlier
      uncounseled extrajudicial confession implicating his co-
      accused in the crime charged, is that testimony admissible in
      evidence against the latter? [3%]

      Answer: Yes. The accused can testify by repeating his earlier
      uncounseled extrajudicial confession, because he can be
      subjected to cross-examination.

People v. Nardo 353 SCRA 339 (2001)

Facts:
(A) was charged with rape by his 14-year old daughter. He was convicted
by the Trial Court and sentenced to death. (A) raised the defense that

Admissibility of Evidence

Image
Admissibility of Evidence








2 Axioms of Admissibility
1. None but facts having rational probative value are admissible.
2. All facts having rational probative value are admissible unless
   some specific rule forbids their admission.

The Admissibility of Evidence is Determined at the Time it is Offered
to the Court.

Heirs of Sabanpan v. Comorposa (2003)
   The admissibility of evidence should not be confused with its
   probative value.

   Admissibility refers to the question of whether certain pieces of
   evidence are to be considered at all, while probative value refers
   to the question of whether the admitted evidence proves an issue.

   Thus, a particular item of evidence may be admissible, but its
   evidentiary weight depends on judicial evaluation within the
   guidelines provided by the rules of evidence

Every objection to the admissibility of evidence shall be made at
the time such evidence is offered, or as soon thereafter as the
objection to its admissibility shall have become apparent, oth…
