Definition Edit

The federal voluminous writings exception[1] provides that where the original writings, recordings, or photographs are so voluminous that it would be impractical to produce them in court, a summary may be admitted instead. However, the originals must have been made available to the defendant for examination and copying, at a reasonable time and location. It must also be shown that the material was prepared in summary form by a competent individual.
