Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author focuses on case-making resources from the point of view of the court hearing. The author argues that the procedure as regime and discourse provides means of case-making that are foundational and obligatory, enabling and restrictive. The standardized court is one procedural resource amongst others. The story of "what happened that night" seems inseparable from the file's inscriptions. The story-frame introduces not just facts and counter-facts, but imposes certain norms of what a competent eye witness should know about the events and in how far she or he should be able to report these events from his or her point of view at that time. The procedural infrastructure, even though indispensable, turns out to be imprecise, lacking and fuzzy when it comes to the situated utilization.

Keywords: procedural infrastructure; standardized court; story-frame
