What is the name of your state? Louisiana
What is meant when an attorney says "Objection" at trial time, is overruled, and he/she then says either "Objection" again, or something like "I strongly Object....", and then finally says "I take Exception..."? I have seen written Exceptions and basically understand what they are, but what exactly is the difference, if any, between (1) an Objection and (2) a "strong" Objection, or an Exception? When an attorney says that he "takes Exception" to a point of law or process, must he later file a written Exception, and await a hearing and/or a ruling? Can the judge simply rule on the oral Exception then? I apologize for any confusion in this matter due to my lack of ability to explain what I am attempting to ask better than this. Thanks very much for your help in this matter.
