University of Baltimore Law Review


The author surveys the effects of presumptions in civil cases and examines the Maryland decisions on the subject. Observing the divergence between the "bursting bubble" theory of presumptions embodied in Rule 301 of the new Federal Rules of Evidence and the tendency in Maryland to accord presumptions a greater procedural significance, the author scrutinizes the federal-state choice of law question under Federal Rule 302.
