I am a pro se plaintiff in a civil rights case in federal district court. Did the court commit reversible judicial error in not taking judicial notice of reports incorporated in the compliant that support a stated claim in a decision to grant a dispositive motion for judgement on the pleadings?
The district court may have erred by not taking judicial notice of reports incorporated in the complaint by reference. But that error may have been harmless, if your complaint failed for other reasons.
judicial notice is an exception to the rule about hearsay and the need to authenticate documents. Even if the documents were attached to the complaint it would greatly matter what they were before the court would take judicial notice of the truth of the matters stated in them
