Evidence at trial is provided via affidavits of evidence in chief, on which the deponents are cross-examined. Evidence during interlocutory proceedings is tendered by way of affidavit.

Cross-examination is a given at any trial.

For expert witnesses, the court has the discretion to order a hot-tubbing for experts instead of cross-examination.
