Definition of Objection

There are several different types of objections in a court case. One of the most common objections is the objection to the admissibility of evidence. Objections must very specific and should 1) follow quickly after the occurrence of the action; 2) must specifically state the grounds of inadmissibility; 3) identify which part of the evidence should be inadmissible in the case; and 4) identify the party. Evidence may also be objected to if the plaintiff or the defendant is offering the evidence in a general way when it should only be allowed for a specific purpose.
