To test the admissibility of evidence in the absence of the Jury.
I don't know if that term is used for that process in the U.S. When the defense wanted to get evidence out of a trial, they would make a motion to the judge, and a hearing would be set. We cops just called it a "suppression hearing" or a "motion to suppress" hearing.

Here, a Trial will start. Jury empanelled. Defence knows what the Prosecution intends to lead. Before opening addresses, if Defence wants to challenge proposed evidence as inadmissible, Counsel will stand and inform the Judge that there are legal issues he wishes to raise 'on the voir dire.' Judge will address the Jury and tell them they may retire to the Jury Room while he and Counsel attend to some housekeeping on matters which do not concern them. That way, the Jury does not get to be aware of anything which the Judge may rule as inadmissible.

Pretty much the same here. A suppression hearing is never done in front of a jury. It is often done before a jury is impaneled because if the evidence is determined to be inadmissible, the case may be dropped. And if the case is going to be dropped, judges and prosecutors don't want to have wasted their time impaneling a jury and starting the trial. Sometimes defense will object to evidence during a trial, in which case the jury is excused, and the judge hears arguments from both sides and makes a ruling.

No, not the stapes, malleus, or the Incus. Those are the things that are in the middle ear(ossicles), and attached to the eardrum. They are the smallest, not the thinnest. And, if you say the fibula, then you've been looking on the internet. And, it's wrong.

Many drugs have been developed for managing depression etc over the years.. just like LSD was originally a research tool to help with mental illness ( a brief synopsis) . Some of these drugs have become illicit, or illegal.. and in the last 20 years a particularly popular party drug has been E.... = Ecstasy.

Originally developed to help patients deal with mental illness.

Never tried it myself.. too old to want to party.. :giggle:
