AEL partner David M. Eskew co-authored an article with colleague Paul Murphy, a partner at Teitler & Teitler, entitled “Propensity – Persuasion and Prejudice: A Look at “Other Acts” Evidence and What the Defense Can Do About It.” The article was originally published in the American Bar Association’s Litigation Journal, Vol. 47, No. 2 (Winter 2021). The article focuses on the practical challenges presented by the admission of propensity evidence in state and federal criminal cases and offers analysis of real-life cases in which such evidence had a featured role. In the article, David and Paul offer practical tips on defending against the dreaded propensity evidence. The article can be read through the link below, in its entirety on our blog, or in the latest edition of the ABA Litigation Journal.
