Suppose Party A & Party B have a disagreement about the terms a contract and Party A presents a contract written in 2010 as evidence against the other party.
Party B presents a different contract written in 2013 which is worded slightly differently and supports his case.
Party A then finds a 3rd contract written in 2016 which matches the one written in 2010.
Is the new contract admissible as evidence court? Suppose the contracts were written over a period of 5-10 years so it is within reason the Party A may have legitimately forgot about the 3rd contract.
Would the court accept the 3rd contract from Party A as evidence? Or would it be rejected on the basis that it conflicts with the first contract presented to the court?
Would it matter whether Party A introduced the original contract during discovery or in court?
