Wikipedia

  1. Redirect examination

    Redirect examination, in the United States, is the questioning of a witness who has already provided testimony under oath in response to direct examination as well as cross examination by the opponent. On redirect, the attorney offering the witness will ask additional questions that attempt to rehabilitate the witness's credibility, or otherwise mitigate deficiencies identified and explored by the opponent on cross. For example, the opponent might elicit on cross-examination an admission that the witness did not directly perceive every single part of the events at issue; the proponent will attempt on redirect to establish that the witness perceived enough of those events that the finder of fact can draw reasonable inferences as to the gaps where the witness's perception was obstructed. "Recross" is sometimes allowed, but usually the opposing attorney must ask for permission from the judge before proceeding with that additional round of questioning. In Australia, Canada, India, UK and South Africa the process is called re-examination.

  1. redirect examination

    Redirect examination is a phase in a legal trial where a lawyer has another opportunity to question a witness after cross-examination, in order to clarify or reinforce their testimony. It allows the attorney to respond to issues raised during the cross-examination and to further bolster the credibility of the witness or address any holes or inconsistencies that may have been highlighted.

  1. Redirect examination

    Redirect examination is the trial process by which the party who offered the witness has a chance to explain or otherwise qualify any damaging or accusing testimony brought out by the opponent during cross-examination. Redirect examination may question only those areas brought out on cross-examination and may not stray beyond that boundary. When a witness is presented for testimony in the U.S. judicial system, the order is "direct" testimony, then the opposing attorney does "cross" and then "redirect" from the attorney first offering the witness. "Recross" may be allowed, but usually the opposing attorney must ask for permission from the judge before proceeding with this additional round of questioning. In Australia, Canada and South Africa the process is called re-examination.
