This recent case highlights the importance of making sure all exhibits are actually admitted into evidence during the trial. Here, the record on appeal did not contain the substitute trustee’s deed evidencing the landlord’s ownership of the property in an eviction proceeding. However, because both parties referred to the document during the course of the trial, the court held “for all practical purposes,” it was admitted into evidence. See Martin v. Federal Nat. Mortg. Ass’n 2014 WL 3057389, 4 (Tex.App.-Dallas) (Tex.App.-Dallas,2014).
