The article discusses several concerns regarding interpretations of the U.S. Federal Rules of Evidence as of 2015, and it mentions America's character evidence rules and the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in the 1948 case Michelson v. United States which deals with the defendant's request for the court to prohibit customary types of prosecution responses to character testimony. The legal rights of defendants in America are examined, along with cross-examinations and witness credibility.
