Pension Treatment under the Collateral Source Rule
Joseph I. Rosenberg. 2020. Pension Treatment under the Collateral Source Rule. Journal of Legal Economics 26(1-2): pp. 151–220.
Although collateral source rules generally prohibit admission of evidence that the plaintiff has received compensation from sources other than the defendant, there are a number of exceptions. This article examines both the rule and the exceptions to the rule for disability or survivor’s pensions. It also identifies rulings that apply somewhat contradictory logic in affirming exactly what types of collateral source income is permissible as evidence.
