Davis v. State of Ohio, Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Case No. CV96-312322
state's filing, motion in limine, hearsay, Ohio Evid.R. 404, Ohio Evid.R. 901, Cynthia Cooper, Pauline Eskins, Mary Eskins, Judith Zackowski, Dr. David Bing, Dr. Laber, Alan Gore, Cynthia Cooper, Carmen Marino, John Wilson
The State of Ohio moves to exclude evidence that it views as clearly irrelevant or inadmissible hearsay. In the first section, the State urges the court to exclude Sam Sheppard’s testimony about his family life subsequent to his imprisonment because the testimony is irrelevant. In the second section of the motion the State asks the court to exclude testimony of witnesses Pauline and Mary Eskins, Judith Zackowski, Dr. David Bing, Dr. Laber, Alan Gore, Cynthia Cooper, Carmen Marino and John Wilson. The third section argues that Sam’s “Mockery of Justice” book, the AMSEC Investigative report, certain broadcast and written presentations, and the wood chip exhibits should all be excluded in whole. In the final section, the state explains how the Cooper Affidavits and the Vern Lund Materials could result in inadmissible hearsay.
