287 - A JUDGE RECEIVING TESTIMONY FROM A LITIGANT'S RELATIVE


Deuteronomy 24:16 -- “Fathers shall not be put to death for their children, nor shall the children be put to death for their fathers; a person shall be put to death for his own sin.”

Relatives whose evidence is inadmissible in Jewish law are: “father, brother, father’s brother, mother’s brother, sister’s husband, father’s sister’s husband, mother’s sister’s husband, mother’s husband, father-in-law, the wife’s sister’s husband, together with their sons and their sons-in-law; also a step-son… and all that are qualified to be one’s heirs.”* However, in cases involving monetary claims, if one of the parties agrees to be bound by such evidence, he is so bound.**
