Oral Argument 9/20/2013

Highlight

Lay witness testimony, in the form of an opinion, must be rationally based on the perception of the witness and also helpful to the jury's determination of a fact in question.
When a police officer simply relies on information gathered by other officers on which to base his opinion, he is not offering lay opinion testimony as N.D.R.Ev. 701 intends.
The harmless error standard is applied to a lay witness testifying as an expert.
