Under Evid. Code 1222, authorized admissions are an exception to the hearsay rule. This decision holds that the exception applies to any authorized statements by an agent or employee, whether made to third parties or to other agents or employees of the same principal. It also holds that under Dart Industries, Inc. v. Commercial Union Ins. Co. (2002) 28 Cal.4th 1059, the authorized admission exception applies to statements by agents or employees concerning matters within the scope of their authority; they need not be appointed to speak on those subjects by the principal. Title alone shows authority to speak for corporate higher-ups, but evidence other than title may show that others lower in the hierarchy were authorized to speak on specific subjects.
