GLEAPCD RULE 119 EVIDENCE          
LAST REVISED 11/11/11
          
          
          Sec 119.  EVIDENCE.

                    A.  Oral evidence shall be taken only on oath or
                        affirmation.

                    B.  Each party shall have these rights:  To call and
                        examine witnesses, to introduce exhibits, to 
                        cross-examine opposing witnesses on any matter 
                        relevant to the issues even though that matter was 
                        not covered in the direct examination, to impeach 
                        any witness regardless of which party first called 
                        him to testify, and to rebut the evidence against 
                        him.  If respondent does not testify in his own 
                        behalf, he may be called and examined as if under 
                        cross-examination.

                    C.  The hearing need not be conducted according to
                        technical rules relating to evidence and witnesses.  
                        Any relevant evidence shall be admitted if it is 
                        the sort of evidence on which responsible persons 
                        are accustomed to rely in the conduct of serious 
                        affairs regardless of the existence of any common 
                        law or statutory rule which might make improper the 
                        admission of such evidence over objection in civil 
                        actions.  Hearsay evidence may be used for the 
                        purpose of supplementing or explaining any direct
                        evidence but shall not be sufficient in itself to 
                        support a finding unless it would be admissible over 
                        objection in civil actions.  The rules of privilege 
                        shall be effective to the same extent that they are 
                        not or hereafter may be recognized in civil actions, 
                        and irrelevant and unduly repetitious evidence shall 
                        be excluded.
