In Reply to: Is videotape of damages to an apartment admissible in Housing Court? posted by Rick on July 23, 2001 at 03:45:07:
I don't see admissability as the problem, but I do see playing the tape in housing court as a problem.
Unlike the small claims court shows on TV, housing court probably doesn't have the ability to play back videotape in any form, let alone in all of the common forms -- VHS, VHS-C, 8 mm, and Hi-8 mm. Unless your camcorder has a fairly large screen for playback, you'd probably have to bring your own TV and VCR, or a combination TV-VCR unit, to housing court.
: If so, under what circumstances? I have a lot of damage to my apt. and I did a "video tour" of the place to show what happened, and how appliances are now inoperable, and I was told by a friend the video might be inadmissible, not sure that's true.
