This article discusses problems encountered by attorneys faced with complex civil litigation where much evidence is contained in business-related documents. The article discusses evidentiary problems that recur in a majority of business documents, such as opinions by persons who are unavailable or nonexperts that are contained in these documents, and multiple levels of hearsay within business documents. In addition, this article explores the alternative options available to counsel when attempts to use the "business records exception" fail.
