Highlight

A stipulation as to foundation does not eliminate a trial court's discretion to reject evidence on grounds of relevance.
Allowing a party to read the deposition of an opposing party's witness into evidence is not necessarily an abuse of discretion.
Denying a motion for new trial brought on the ground a party abused discovery by failing to provide a document relating to liability is not an abuse of discretion when liability is not at issue in the trial.
