TITLE 86: REVENUE
CHAPTER IV: ILLINOIS GAMING BOARD
PART 3000 RIVERBOAT GAMBLING
SECTION 3000.1145 EVIDENCE


 

Section 3000.1145  Evidence

 

a)         The hearing need not be conducted according to technical rules of evidence.  Any relevant evidence may be admitted and shall be sufficient in itself to support a finding if it is the sort of evidence on which responsible persons are accustomed to rely in the conduct of serious affairs, regardless of the existence of any common law or statutory rule which might make improper the admission of such evidence over objection in a civil action.

 

1)         If relevant, official Illinois Gaming Board records or certified copies thereof shall be admissible into evidence if such records tend to prove or disprove an allegation contained in the complaint.

 

2)         Official Illinois Gaming Board records are documents either prepared by or provided to the Board for the purpose of conducting its regular business.

 

b)         The parties should, to the fullest extent possible, stipulate to all matters which are not or fairly should not be in dispute.

 

c)         The parties may make objections to evidentiary offers.  When an objection is made, the hearing officer may receive the disputed evidence subject to a ruling at a later time.

 

d)         The hearing officer may take official notice of any generally accepted information or technical or scientific matter within the field of gaming, and any other fact which may be judicially noticed by courts of this State.  The parties shall be informed of any information, matter or facts so noticed, including any staff memoranda or data, and shall be given reasonable opportunity to refute such information.
