Perhaps an Interesting Hearsay Problem in the Astor Case

This murky statement of facts in the "Astor trial" [the Marshall trial, actually] suggests that an interesting hearsay problem lurks.

According to the aforesaid murky statement of facts the trial judge excluded the offered evidence as irrelevant. It is rather unusual for evidence to be excluded solely because of irrelevance. One observer (Tillers) wonders if the trial judge was trying to avoid a difficult hearsay problem.
