Marked for Identification

Primary tabs

An item that has been “marked for identification” is one that has been assigned an identifying number or letter for the purpose of organizing potential exhibits in a legal trial that have not yet been entered into evidence. Upon being entered into evidence, an item previously “marked for identification” is referred to simply as an “exhibit,” usually with the corresponding number or letter it was originally assigned when marked for identification.
