Abstract : Our discussion of the 'law of evidence' centers primarily upon one question: whether or not certain information may be presented to the trier of fact in a legal proceeding. In the military, that proceeding is a court-martial, and the individual initially responsible for making the decision is the military judge. In a case in which the accused requests trial by military judge alone, the judge determines whether or not to consider each item of information presented by counsel. In a trial by court members, the judge determines whether the members may hear the information, or, if the members have heard the information prior to an objection, whether the members will be instructed to disregard the information.
