law-admission-exclusion-of-evidence

We review a trial court's evidentiary decisions by an abuse-of-discretion standard.  
Nat'l Liab. & Fire Ins. Co. v. Allen, 15 S.W.3d 525, 527-28 (Tex. 2000).  

To obtain reversal of a judgment based upon the improper admission of evidence,
[appellant] must show that the trial court committed error and that the error was
reasonably calculated to cause and probably did cause the rendition of an improper
judgment.  See TEX. R. APP. P. 44.1(a).  Error based on the admission of evidence
is generally not reversible unless the appellant can demonstrate that the judgment
turns on the particular evidence excluded or admitted.  Interstate Northborough P’ship
v. State, 66 S.W.3d 213, 220 (Tex. 2001).
