Hearsay State of Mind-Cases

2004 Wright v. Kaye, 267 Va. 510, 593 S.E.2d 307.

Medical malpractice action where physician sought to offer evidence of intraoperative conversation that he had with other physician as to propriety of his proposed action. Although statement may be offered to show the state of mind of the operating physician, technically, any hearsay statement could be offered for that purpose. The advice given by that outside physician clearly is hearsay, and was being offered for its truth value, i.e., the advice given and therefore, it was not admissible.
