Rule 802.  The Rule Against Hearsay.


Hearsay is not admissible except as provided by law or by these rules.



2011 Advisory Committee Note.  The language of this rule has been amended as part of the restyling of the Evidence Rules to make them more easily understood and to make style and terminology consistent throughout the rules. These changes are intended to be stylistic only. There is no intent to change any result in any ruling on evidence admissibility. This rule is the federal rule, verbatim.


Original Advisory Committee Note.  This rule is Rule 802 of the Uniform Rules of Evidence (1974), and is the same as the first paragraph of Rule 63, Utah Rules of Evidence (1971).
