refreshing memory

A procedure in which a witness may, while testifying, remind himself of events that he has forgotten by referring to a document that was made at the same time as the occurrence of the events in question and was accepted as accurate by the witness while the facts were fresh in his memory. At common law the document itself did not become evidence in the case, but it is now admissible in civil cases under the Civil Evidence Act 1968.
