Evidentiary Value of Photocopies in Mexican Labor Board Proceedings

Evidentiary Value of Photocopies in Mexican Labor Board Proceedings

The Sixth Collegiate Court on Labor Matters of the First Circuit published judicial decision number I.16o.T.J/2(10a), which reads: “Plain photocopies submitted in a labor board lawsuit. Regarding its probative value, when the origin, authorship or preparation of the original document is attributed to the opposing party to the offeror.” In this case decision, the Court ruled that the Labor Board may grant evidentiary value to a photocopy, including plenary probative value to a simple copy of a document whose origin, authorship or preparation of the original is attributed to the opposing party, if such party does not object to the document or does so in general terms, without objecting to its authorship and existence. Such a non-objection will be considered as a tacit acceptance both of its existence and of opposing party’s agreement with its content with respect to the original document.
