    Answered . No, you cannot request judicial notice to admit into evidence the income and expense declarations filed in a separate action. Such declarations could possibly used for impeachment, but you won't be able to just ask the court to take judicial notice of the truth of the matters stated in the declarations.

    Answered . You probably could enter them, but it's irrelevant. UD actions are highly statute-driven. Tenants either pay the rent, or they don't; if they don't, they have to leave (after proper notice and an opportunity to cure).
