Miss. R. Evid. 1101

Restyled eff. July 1, 2016.

Advisory Committee Note The language of Rule 1101 has been amended as part of the general restyling of the Evidence Rules to make them more easily understood and to make style and terminology consistent throughout the rules. Rule 1101(b) has been restructured slightly, reordering paragraphs (3) and (4). These changes are intended to be stylistic only. There is no intent to change any result in any ruling on evidence admissibility. Subsection (a) provides for the applicability of the rules in all actions in courts in the state with enumerated exceptions which are set forth in Subsection (b). ["Advisory Committee Note" substituted for "Comment," effective June 16, 2016; amended July 1, 2016, to note restyling.] .
