1105.14000 – Witnesses: Credibility, Cross Examination and Impeachment; Pretrial Statements
Hearsay evidence contained in declarations is insufficient, by itself, to make findings and resolve disputed material facts. (PERB Reg. 32176.) ALJ had discretion to convene a hearing to take live testimony on disputed material facts in order to inquire fully into all issues and obtain a complete record on which a decision could be rendered, even where parties had agreed to proceed on a stipulated record and declarations containing disputed factual issues.
