Top 5 Legal Lies From ‘HTGAWM’ S1 E5 (‘We’re Not Friends’)

1. Ryan’s Blog Can Be Introduced Under ‘Rule 106.’

The judge cites “Rule 106″ when he allows Ryan’s blog posts into evidence. Surprisingly, the Pennsylvania Rules of Evidence do have a Rule 106, and it does deal with the contents of writings.
