    Rules of Evidence Publications Keep You Informed

    In Gehin v. Wisconsin Group Insurance Board, the Wisconsin Supreme Court did not strictly adhere to the legal residuum rule, which prohibits administrative hearing bodies from basing findings of fact solely on uncorroborated hearsay. While Gehrin provides grounds for exceptions to the rule and addresses several satellite issues, it is unclear when corrobration is required and when it is not.
