What do I do in court if I have to quote an email that contains profanity?
January 29, 2018
I have to present some emails in a small claims court hearing.
I am the plaintiff. The emails are from the defendant. They are laced with profanity. Not only what was said, but also HOW it was said is part of my argument for animus and malice.
So what do people do in court when they have to quote something that contains profanity?
Just warn the judge immediately before reading them out in open court... "Your honor, there's bad language in this. Should I say it out loud?..." or something to that effect. You'll be told that you have to.
