Redirect examination

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

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.
