"Your Honor, I'd Like to Mark This as Plaintiff's #1 For Identification"; NY Attorney Gerry Oginski Explains

In every medical malpractice trial, accident trial or wrongful death trial here in New York, we need to introduce different documents and things into evidence.

How do we actually accomplish this?

How do we get those things in front of the jury?

If we have something that we want a witness to look at, how do we actually identify it so that the court knows what this is, the defense attorney knows what it is and the jury knows exactly what it's?

More importantly, if the case goes up on appeal how do we get the appellate judges who are reviewing the transcript to know what it is that we are giving to witness to look at?

The answer is to identify each object or document before we actually give it to the witness.

In NY, in civil cases, if we want to have a witness look at a document we will ask the court to mark it for identification.

The people who bring a lawsuit and are seeking compensation are known as 'plaintiffs'. When the plaintiff wants to have a witness look at a document the court will identify it using numerals: 1, 2, 3, etc.

When the defense wants a witness to look at a document, the court will identify that thing using alphabetical letters, A., B., C., etc.
