Assignment: Assignment 5 (following Class 15)
Lena returned from work and found her roommate Debra shaking, vomiting, and moaning in pain. Lena quickly drove Debra to a nearby emergency room. On the way to the hospital, Debra said: “Eve did this.”
At the emergency room, a doctor immediately took Debra`s medical history. Debra told the doctor: “A friend gave me some brownies. They tasted a little funny, but I ate them. About ten minutes later, my heart started beating fast, this shaking started, and I had to vomit. Help me!”
A police officer, who had just transported another patient to the emergency room, overheard Debra`s statement. “Who gave you those brownies?” the officer demanded. “We have to make sure he doesn`t give them to anyone else. This could be a bioterrorist attack!” Debra told the police officer, “It was my friend Eve, but I`m sure she`s not a terrorist. She`s just a bad cook.”
Debra then lapsed into a coma; the following day she died of heart failure. An autopsy revealed that Debra had been poisoned with dried venom taken from a Colorado River Toad (Bufo Alvarius). That toad`s venom causes hallucinations, nervous seizures, vomiting, and heart failure.
After a full police investigation, the prosecutor charged Eve with first-degree murder. The prosecutor claims that Eve intentionally poisoned Debra with venom-laden brownies. At trial, the prosecutor plans to introduce the following evidence:
Lena`s testimony that, on the way to the hospital, Debra said “Eve did this.”
Debra`s patient chart from the hospital, in which the doctor recorded Debra`s statement that: “A friend gave me some brownies. They tasted a little funny, but I ate them. About ten minutes later, my heart started beating fast, this shaking started, and I had to vomit. Help me!” The emergency room`s head nurse will testify that the hospital has regular guidelines for documenting patient illnesses, and that Debra`s chart complied with those guidelines. The head nurse did not hear Debra`s statement; the doctor who treated him is not available to testify at trial.
The police officer`s testimony that Debra said “my friend Eve” when asked who gave him the brownies.
Testimony by Dr. Frank Toad, an expert on animal toxins, that: “In my opinion, the venom of a Colorado River Toad is so poisonous that any food containing this toad`s venom was intended to kill the recipient.” Eve`s attorney has stipulated that the field of animal toxins is an appropriate one for expert testimony and that Toad is qualified in that field.
Testimony from Eve`s brother, Brett, that Eve has a longstanding habit—dating back to childhood—of collecting and torturing toads.
Apart from the stipulation noted in part (d) above, Eve`s attorney plans to challenge each of these pieces of evidence. Please discuss the specific objections that Eve should raise with respect to each piece of evidence and the likelihood of prevailing on those objections.

Frequently asked questions
How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?
We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.
I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
