NJ High Court Limits Use of Testimony Extracted by Hypnosis

The NJ Supreme Court reversed its position on the use of refreshed hypnosis testimony by saying there is doubt that such evidence meets the standards of admissibility. However, the refreshed testimony will still be allowed if it comes from the defendant on trial. The decision stems from a rape case in which the defendant questioned whether proper procedures were followed regarding the use of hypnosis evidence provided by the alleged victim.
