What objections and should be made, Business Law and Ethics

Defendant, Jones, is charged with several counts of possession of drugs and weapons. In the early morning hours, a 911 caller reported: "I hear a loud disturbance from Joe Jones' apartment, number 304, directly above my apartment." Police were dispatched to that address.

Seven minutes after the initial call, police received a second 911 call, from a nearby convenience store pay telephone. The caller identified herself as Louise Hawkins and asked the police to go to apartment 304. The caller said "My husband just pulled a gun on me, a big handgun with a clip. It looked like some kind of automatic." The caller also said "There's also drugs and everything else in that apartment up there."

The police dispatcher relayed the information to the police who were on their way to the apartment. When the police arrived, they found the defendant in the hallway outside apartment 304. A search of the premises and a storage locker revealed both crack cocaine and a loaded semi-automatic pistol.

Before trial the defendant moves to preclude the admission of the two 911 calls. At a hearing on the motion, the following happens:

Judge: Counsel, what's the evidentiary basis for your motion?

                A. What objections and should be made?

                B. What are the best arguments to support the objections?

                C. What are the best arguments to oppose the objections?
