(2) An original cannot be obtained by any available judicial process or procedure;
(3) At a time when an original was under the control of the party against whom offered, that party was put on notice, by the pleadings or otherwise, that the contents would be a subject of proof at the hearing, and the party does not produce the original at the hearing; or
(4) The writing, recording or photograph is not closely related to a controlling issue. [1981 c.892 §74]
