Highlight

N.D.R.Ev. 609 governs the admission of evidence of certain criminal convictions for the purpose of attacking a witness's general character for truthfulness. Rule 609 does not apply to the admission of evidence of a prior conviction for purposes of impeachment by contradiction.
Evidence that is otherwise inadmissible, may be admitted if the opposing party opens the door through his testimony and invites any error.
A district court is required to follow the pronouncement of any appellate court on legal issues in subsequent proceedings and to carry out the appellate court's mandate according to its terms.
