Best Answer

It depends on the content of the letter, the judge, the OTHER attorney and how fortunate you are on that particular day. Many times the judge wants to give the attorneys to "discover" anything that might have been accidentally left out of the letter. If by "stand up in court" you mean can it be used as evidence to prove the truth of what the letter says, then No. A written statement, even if made under oath, may not be used in evidence in place of having the person making the statement appear and give live testimony. Allowing that kind of evidence in that way deprives the other side of the opportunity to cross-examine that person and is inherently unfair even if the statement is signed and notarized.
