Law/Patents - Law (general) / evidence
German term or phrase: Beweistransfer
U.S. Supreme Court zum Konfrontationsrecht: Ohne Mitwirkung der Verteidigung kein Beweistransfer - also ein Meilenstein für die Beschuldigtenrechte?

This term is used a number of times in a law review article with the above title (see http://www.hrr-strafrecht.de/hrr/archiv/04-09/index.php3?sei... The article analyzes US Supreme Court case (see http://www.hrr-strafrecht.de/hrr/ussc/02/02-9410.php?referer... In that context, it appears to refer to the admission of ex parte testimony, but I can find nothing definitive in any legal reference materials. Is anyone familiar with the term?

cross-admissibility (internationally; US: interstate) of evidence

Cross-admissible is a stretchable concept: from defendant to defendant; case-to-case; state to state; or country to country.

The fact that it is ex parte testimony is secondary to the overarching admissibility issue.

Example sentence(s):
  • Under the court\\\'s rule, the first issue raised by a motion to sever is cross- admissibility: Whether evidence admissible to one case would also be admissible ...

Reference: transfer of evidence

Reference information:
in the book synopsis mentioned below "Beweistransfer" is mentioned. From the context it would seem to address the question of when evidence obtained in one context or legal system can be admitted as evidence in another.

In your case, as you say, it appears to relate to ex parte testimony which cannot be tested by cross-examination
