I think you miss the point on the offer of proof. Generally, counsel does the summary because the argument is that the material is irrelevant or otherwise barred. Thus, even if the proof is as offered, it would not be admissible. For that reason, most judges will not take the time to have the witness testify.

Hopey: I'm merely quoting from the Fourth District's opinion--the indented passage is a direct quote. So what you mean to say, I think, is that Justice Steigmann has missed the point about offers of proof. Or am I missing the point?
