2. Real Evidence:
Tangible evidence that relates to the core matter of the litigation is real evidence.
3. Demonstrative Evidence:
Tangible evidence that illustrates, explains or summarizes the position of the party that offers it into evidence, is demonstrative evidence.
Consider a homicide trial in which the prosecution introduces the alleged murder weapon and a schematic drawing of the path the defendant allegedly followed to access the victim’s home. The murder weapon is real evidence; the schematic drawing is demonstrative evidence.
