I'm not a lawyer "IANAL", but I know from experience that
anything goes in civil court. The doubt standard is lower.
"Chain of
evidence" is related to criminal cases, to insure that there
wasn't tampering by law enforcement or others associated
with the 
legal system, and to insure that the higher proof standard
is not 
tainted by corrupt evidence or people. I think it's
different because
you can lose your liberty as the result of a criminal
proceeding, but
not a civil proceeding. Not a lawyer, never studied law,
never passed
the bar, not a paralegal. Jury Duty.
