(a) The panel will decide what evidence to admit. The panel is not required to follow state or federal rules of evidence.
(b) Production of documents in discovery does not create a presumption that the documents are admissible at the hearing. A party may state objections to the introduction of any document as evidence at the hearing to the same extent that any other objection may be raised in arbitration.
(c) Notwithstanding paragraph (a) of this Rule, a prior expungement award shall not be admissible.
