PART 1: Net Income Cannot Buy Groceries – Only Cash Can

Courts commonly hear this argument from a business-operating Support Payor. Payor contends that support orders should be based only on business cash flow. Support Recipient counters that the orders should be based instead on business net income, which more accurately measures recurring earning capacity. Only a judicial officer able to distinguish between genuine and manipulated cash transactions can fairly set support, and only a lawyer conversant with those distinctions can advocate capably. Business cash flow can be manipulated with transactions such as:
• Accelerated expense payments
• Accelerated debt repayment
• Excess inventory purchases
• Ending inventory misstatements
• Receivables collection deferral
• Third-party loans
• Capital asset purchases
• Cash reserves accumulation

This program begins by clarifying the various forms of cash flow transactions (authentic and phony), and ends with a spirited duel between Payor’s and Recipient’s lawyers

PART 2: Evidentiary Hot Spots


Trial lawyers encounter some evidentiary problems frequently, others rarely.  We could find useful a program presenting thorough analyses of the few commonly-encountered evidentiary issues, rather than skin-deep analyses of many.  "Evidentiary Hot Spots" is focused on the few.  Its topics include:
• Section 1237 past recollection recorded vs. Section 771 refreshed recollection
• Section 1552 authentication of computer evidence
• The Section 770 impeachment trap
• The Sullivan v. Superior Court privilege protection for documents used to refresh recollection
• Section 702 proof of personal knowledge
• The Section 354 offer of proof trap
• The Stewart v. Colonial Western Agency deposition objection rule
