Idaho Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 43(b)(5). Reexamination and Recalling of Witnesses. 

A witness once examined cannot be reexamined as to the same matter without leave of the court, but the witness may be reexamined as to any new matter upon which the witness has been examined by the adverse party. And after the examinations on both sides are once concluded, the witness cannot be recalled by the same party without leave of the court. Leave shall be granted or withheld by the court in the exercise of sound discretion. This rule shall not preclude the adverse party from calling such witness as that party's own witness for direct examination. 

As the Third Branch of Government, we provide access to justice through the timely, fair, and impartial resolution of cases.
