No error in either the admission or the exclusion of evidence and no error or defect
in any ruling or order or in anything done or omitted by the court or by any of the
parties is ground for granting a new trial or for setting aside a verdict or for vacating,
modifying, or otherwise disturbing a judgment or order, unless refusal to take such
action appears to the court inconsistent with substantial justice. The court at every stage of the proceeding must disregard any error or defect in the
proceeding which does not affect the substantial rights of the parties.
