RE: Rule 611, N.D.R.Ev., Mode and Order of Examining Witnesses and Presenting Evidence
Form and style amendments to Rule 611 consistent with the 2011 federal amendments are proposed. The amendments are not intended to change any result in any ruling on evidence admissibility.
The explanatory note contained an item on how the court could allow the use of an anatomically correct doll in a child's testimony. This note is deleted in the proposal because it seems out of place.
