i say property 'cause it requires a completely separate vocab from other areas of law, introduces new words for the same concepts in other fields

Lol.  Studying Evidence now.

"Even though Rule 404 does not exclude the evidence, it is still subject to Rule 403 balancing.  A rational truthseeking judge would admit the evidence and leave it to the jury to assign the appropriate probative value.  However, a quasi-rational truthseeking judge, in order to counter the jurors' biases, might exclude the evidence as too prejudicial.  And if a judge subscribes to the narrative integrity view, he would admit the evidence as substantiating the jurors' real-world sensibilities and legitimating the adjudicatory system."

Lol, only if you're taking your exam at Yale tomorrow.  Even then, just know that Rule 403 allows the judge to do basically whatever he wants and you'll get a P :).
