Vertical Chain with Ancillary Matters

&&&

Spindle Law's Evidence Module has material about chains of inference, or inference-on-inference or -- in other words -- pyramided or cascaded inference. (The diagram found above shows that credibility analysis -- assessment of the credibility of a witness -- involves pyramided inferences, inference-on-inference. And this shows that the notion that testimonial evidence is non-circumstantial evidence is mush.)

A Provisional Remedy for Viewing MarshalPlan

Until runRev (formerly "Revolution") releases a plug-in that can display runRev substacks (subfiles) on the web -- this may or may not happen on November 11 -- consider downloading and running the executable file Network to see MarshalPlan (my evidence marshaling software) in its full glory (if that is the correct descriptor).

An Interesting New Conference

Tagung zur Rechtsvisualisierung, zum Audiovisuellen und Multisensorischen Recht", Nov. 23-24, 2009, Verlag C. H. Beck, Wilhelmstrasse 9, 80801 M√ľnchen, Germany.

I have reason to believe that the participants in this conference on visualization of law include Prof. Dr. Friedrich Lachmayer, Prof. Dr. Lothar Philipps & Dr. & Senior Lecturer Burkhard Schafer.

Eliot Spitzer:Ethics::Genghis Khan:Peace

Harvard University's Edmund J. Safra Foundation Center for Ethics recently announced that Eliot Spitzer will be giving a lecture there on Nov. 12, 2009. Yes, that's correct, that Eliot Spitzer; yes, this center for ethics is hosting this lecture; and, no, I am not trying to perpetrate a hoax.

I can only surmise that the Center believes that infamy is as good as fame. Or perhaps it believes in redemption? Or perhaps ... well, who knows?

Bizarre.

But I must admit that the Center does have a classy web site. Kudos to the web master. (I had to say something nice about the Center.)
