The Art And Style Of Cross-examination, Protection Of The Right To Cross-examine: The Hearsay Rule
During a trial, virtually all evidence is presented to the fact finder (usually a jury in criminal cases, but sometimes a judge) through witnesses called by each party during that party's case. The party that has called a witness first has an opportunity to elicit testimony from that witness in direct examination. At the conclusion of direct examination, and usually with little delay, the opposing party will have a chance to cross-examine the witness (although he is not obliged to do so).
