15. Use of Rule 1006 summaries for voluminous records

  1. Use of chart or summary exhibit. 
    Using Rule 1006 of the Federal Rules of Evidence as a guideline, and unless permitted by the ALJ to do otherwise, a party that wants the ALJ to consider the contents of voluminous records should offer that evidence as an exhibit in the form of a chart or summary.
  2. Filing and service of summary exhibit and supporting documents. 
    The chart or summary offered as an exhibit, like other proposed exhibits, must be furnished to the ALJ and staff attorney and served on the opposing party at the time of the exchange.  In addition, the offering party must supply the opposing party at that time with copies of all supporting documents on which the summaries are based.  The ALJ may order also that the voluminous records be produced at the hearing.
