This survey of Procedure and Evidence is in most respects merely a horizontal digest of the cases which have been published between June 1, 1958, and June 1, 1959. Only a few decisions are of the character and importance that would call for comment in regular course in a law review like the Vanderbilt Law Review. Many of them are mere illustrations of inexcusable disregard by counsel of our applicable statutes and rules and previous decisions of our appellate courts interpreting them. Whether this sort of treatment of the subject is justifiable is open to serious question. The answer depends upon whether it is of real service to the members of the Tennessee Bar; the editors of this Review will welcome comment from them as a guide for future surveys.
