Circumstantial evidence in Nebraska
Fenner, G. Michael
Historically there were four lines of Nebraska cases regarding the value of circumstantial evidence. They proceeded along parallel tracks, oblivious to each other. This article traces the history of the four lines and comes to this conclusion: When judged by the words used to explain it, each line is inconsistent with each of the other three. When judged by how each is applied, the results from each line are almost entirely consistent. This article uncovers and discusses each line of cases, identifies the correct line, and suggests what should be done next.
