Is Animation Admissible in a Courtroom?

Computer Animations Are Tantamount To Drawings By Experts

One of the biggest concerns attorneys have concerning the use of animations in trial is that after spending a significant amount of time and money to create the animation the court will not allow the jury to see it.
In today's courtrooms, however, the use of video animation is becoming more and more acceptable and commonplace, with very few animations being disallowed. The key is to work closely with experts so that each element of the animation has its foundation in, and is supported by specific expert testimony. Even if allowed for demonstrative purposes only, the powerful effect this tool can have will, in most cases, more than justify the expense.
