NHL QUARTER FINALS: New Jersey Devils 3; ‘Canes 2 JUDICIAL NOTICE: New Jersey Appeal Division 1; Wikipedia 0

Filed under: 1 — ruleswatch @ 8:26 pm

The Appeal Division of the Superior Court of New Jersey in ALISADES COLLECTION, L.L.C.,v. GRAUBARD,A-1338-07T3 has determined that a trial court’s acceptance of a Wikipedia article to determine whether or not the Plaintiff collection agency could sue was in error. The court found that, inter alia judicial notice under the state’s evidence requires “sources whose accuracy cannot be reasonably questioned.” The courr reached its decison after considering Wikipedia’s “own self-assessment” as the”online encyclopedia that anyone can edit.”2 Anyone with an internet connection can create a Wikipedia account and change any entry in Wikipedia…” the Court went on.
