Do Rules of Evidence Apply in Foreclosure Cases? Of course they do. But timely objections must be made to the plaintiff’s introduction of copies of original promissory notes. At trial, when a proper objection to a copy is made, the plaintiff must produce the original promissory note. Without the original, the plaintiff cannot win.
Be aware foreclosure plaintiffs have been trying to get away with copies that look like originals.
