The most recent type of civil commitment for dangerous sex offenders is found under the sexually violent predator laws. Forensic psychiatrists or psychologists must render an opinion as to whether the sex offender has a diagnosed mental disorder and, as such, represents a risk to public safety if released from custody into the community. Thus, expert testimony provided by these professionals has taken a central role in the commitment determinations. There is considerable debate as to what disorders predispose individuals to sexual recidivism and what the term likely signifies. In this article, the authors explore the debate in terms of whether Antisocial Personality Disorder is a qualifying diagnosed mental disorder for classification as a sexually violent predator and how a likely threshold of risk of sexual recidivism can be conceptualized.. ...

Admissibility of Damage Photos & Impact Evidence without an Expert in Illinois. WITHOUT EXPERT TESTIMONY, THE ADMISSIBILITY OF DAMAGE PHOTOS (AND PERHAPS OTHER EVIDENCE SHOWING THE SEVERITY OF IMPACT) IN PERSONAL INJURY ACCIDENT CASES MAY NO LONGER BE AUTOMATIC IN ILLINOIS.. It is common-place in the circuit court to see motions in limine to bar admission of vehicular accident photos offered to show the extent of injuries. In personal injury claims, most states (except Delaware) tend to admit damage photos and other evidence indicating the severity of impact without expert testimony. In Illinois, the admission of such evidence is not automatic, but rather within the sound discretion of the trial court which decides whether expert testimony is required to show relevancy.. Although juries tend to accept or reject injury claims based upon the totality of the evidence adduced at trial, photographic damage photos have traditionally been a part of the equation. However, the admissibility of damages ...
As discussed above, the expert testimony regarding the studies relied upon by Respondents is conflicting. The greater weight of the persuasive expert testimony demonstrates the following: The basic research, the Pantuck Study, and the Carducci Study, relied on by Respondents, support the conclusion that pomegranate juice has a beneficial effect on prostate health. F. 1142. Competent and reliable scientific evidence supports the conclusion that the consumption of pomegranate juice and pomegranate extract supports prostate health, including by prolonging PSA doubling time in men with rising PSA after primary treatment for prostate cancer. F. 1142. However, the greater weight of the persuasive expert testimony shows that the evidence relied upon by Respondents is not adequate to substantiate claims that the POM Products treat, prevent, or reduce the risk of prostate cancer or that they are clinically proven to do so. F. 1143. Indeed, the authors of the Pantuck Study and the Carducci Study each ...

Introduction. Delawares Supreme Court recently decided a trio of cases concerning the admissibility of biomechanical expert testimony. Biomechanics is the study of the mechanical bases of biological, especially muscular, activity; also: the study of the principles and relations involved.[2] The decisions, Eskin v. Carden,[3] Mason v. Rizzi,[4] and Potter v. Blackburn[5] have changed the manner in which biomechanical expert testimony can be offered into evidence in Delaware. In these cases, the Delaware Supreme Court, for the first time, held that biomechanical expert testimony is admissible when offered to show a relationship between the force of a collision and the resulting injuries.[6] The Court did, however, place substantial limitations on those who would proffer such evidence. The Court held that trial judges cannot admit biomechanical expert testimony unless the method of evaluation used is properly calibrated in such a way as to take into consideration the particular medical history ...

One of the biggest obstacles in any medical malpractice case is discovery. Discovery is the portion of a lawsuit in which each side gathers information before trial. In a medical malpractice case, this involves gathering expert testimony from other physicians, obtaining patient records, and getting the details of the negligent actions that caused injury.. Hospitals and doctors often fight discovery requests tooth and nail. They are very reluctant to disclose information for fear of revealing negligent actions on the part of the hospital or physician. This means that often, the most important part of a medical malpractice lawsuit occurs during discovery.. In the case before the Illinois Supreme Court, the issue is whether the states Data Collection Act and the Health Care Quality Improvement Act allow a hospital to refuse to give over documents regarding physician credentials. The case arose after a doctor at the hospital allegedly botched a gallbladder surgery that ended up causing ...
Issue By: Thomas J. LoSavio. Cuevas v. Contra Costa County. First Appellate District, Division One (April 27, 2017). In an ordinary personal injury lawsuit, a defendant may not introduce evidence of amounts the plaintiff received from insurance covering the injuries. This rule is called the collateral source rule. The public policy behind the rule is that a plaintiff who has had the foresight to have paid insurance premiums for medical benefits should not be punished for that foresight and thrift, even if it means that, to some extent, the plaintiff might recover for the same damages twice, once from the insurance carrier and once from the defendant. The collateral source rule is not available to plaintiffs in cases where the injuries are caused by medical malpractice. In medical malpractice cases, evidence of insurance payments may be considered by the jury to reduce the damages to plaintiff. The reason for this different treatment is because the California Legislature responded to what it ...

An expert witness is a witness, who by virtue of education, training, skill, or experience, is believed to have knowledge in a particular subject beyond that of the average person, sufficient that others may officially (and legally) rely upon the witnesss specialized (scientific, technical, or other) opinion about an evidence or fact issue within the scope of their expertise, referred to as the expert opinion, as an assistance to the fact-finder. Expert witnesses may also deliver expert evidence about facts from the domain of their expertise. At times, their testimony may be rebutted with a learned treatise, sometimes to the detriment of their reputations.. Typically, experts are relied on for opinions on severity of injury, degree of insanity, cause of failure in a machine or other device, loss of earnings, care costs, and the like. In an intellectual-property case, an expert may be shown two music scores, book texts, or circuit boards and asked to ascertain their degree of similarity.. The ...
A Florida judge will allow plaintiffs in a Bard G2 IVC filter lawsuit to present expert testimony about fracturing and dislocation of the device. However, according to information on Harris Martins website, the judge will exclude opinions about the adequacy of the testing, design, manufacture, and labeling of Bards G2 filter.. IVC filters such as Bards G2 filter have been in use for roughly 50 years, with an estimated 100,000 devices implanted. IVC filters are designed to prevent blood clots from forming and travelling throughout the body, which can cause strokes and other life-threatening complications. However, the devices allegedly have unexpectedly high failure rates. Numerous studies have found that pieces of IVC filters, and sometimes entire devices, can break away and become lodged in vital organs like the heart and lungs.. Plaintiffs in Bard IVC filter lawsuits allege that as early as 2003, Bard knew that its Recovery IVC filter posed an unacceptably high risk of injury due to ...

By Cheryl Sullenger. Denver, CO - On this forty-fifth memorial of the Roe v. Wade Supreme court decision that decriminalized abortion in the U.S., this abortion horror story illustrates the human price of that tragic decision.. Last week, a local pro-life activist attended one day of the malpractice trail against late-term abortionist Warren Hern, who is accused by a former abortion patient, Jennifer D., of botching her abortion by leaving a piece of her babys skull inside her womb that resulted in a hysterectomy. The activist, who wishes to remain anonymous, visited the courtroom on Tuesday, January 16, 2018, for Day 5 of the proceedings. The observer took notes and reported to Operation Rescue about the days testimony. According to the pro-life observer, a psychologist, Dr. Robert Arias, a psychologist from Lincoln, Nebraska, who specializes in neuropsychology and behavioral sciences, gave testimony through a video deposition. He spoke of the plaintiffs pain and suffering that resulted from ...
The Tribunals three faces spotted Nebulos as he tried escape, and Nebulos told them that the time was not yet ripe, but that in eons to come, his power would be...but the Tribunal cut him off, denying him time or escape and preparing to unleash his full, grim, judgment. Realizing power used against Nebulos would be absorbed by the Staff, the Tribunal instead summoned the Flames of Faltine and threatened to destroy Nebulos world. Nebulos watched in horror as the Tribunal shattered a mountain with a single blast and then told Nebulos he might have mercy if he relinquished the Staff immediately. Nebulos refused, despite the Tribunal shattering a series of mountains. Desperate, Nebulos prepared to unleash the Staffs full power, but -- as the talons of cosmic fire had faded as the Tribunal focused his concentration elsewhere -- Strange swooped in and snatched the Staff from Nebulos hands; lacking the Staffs power, Nebulos was buried by the avalanche caused by the Tribunals blasts. Strange then ...
Health and justice have to communicate whenever the question of legal responsibility is formally raised with respect to a person accused of a serious crime. Clinical and legal definitions of insanity do not match up in a 1:1 fashion. Once a criminal charge has been laid, the New Zealand (NZ) Justice system operates on adversarial, as opposed to inquisitorial, principles. The defence can seek a verdict of not guilty by reason of insanity (NGRI). In which case, to assist the Court, both defence and prosecution seek independent psychiatric opinions on the applicability of criteria prescribed in section 23 of the NZ Crimes Act (1961) and subsequent, relevant, case law. From the outset the situation is contested in the sense that the prosecution and the defence seek opposite outcomes. Psychiatric evidence is presented to the court by expert witnesses whose opinions are separately sought by both the prosecution or the defence. Those witnesses are expected to be dispassionate and their opinions ...
There are certain hospitals and physicians that supply their patients with forms that state arbitration will be required for any claims of medical malpractice. However, within the state of Florida, such alternative dispute forums are not mandated by law. If parties present do not accept the offer of a defendant to make use of arbitration, the maximum amount that can be recovered under state law will not be able to exceed that in economic damages. Specifically, no more than 80 percent of lost wages can be recovered, and in non economic damages, the limit is $350,000.. Whenever a person wants to file a suit against a hospital or a physician under the premise of medical negligence, there must be expert testimony present. Specifically, there must be a written medical expert opinion that supports there are merit to the patients claims of negligence in the actions or inactions of each defendant named in the suit. Defendants who believe that reasonable grounds do not exist within the claim must supply ...
The dissolution of the Water Tribunal nine months ago created a fair amount of controversy and now that the water and environmental department is reviving the administrative body, the question is whether it will be any more effective than it was before.. The Tribunal is a specialised administrative body meant to provide an informal, expeditious, cost-effective and easily accessible platform for dispute resolution in the implementation of the National Water Act. It hears appeals against administrative decisions and directives relating to water which is critical to industry and communities. Given waters elevated importance nationally, a fully functional Water Tribunal is a necessity.. The rationale offered by Water and Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa in initially dissolving the Tribunal was to change the law governing it, thereby making it more efficient. An amendment to the Act increasing the Tribunals powers is definitely welcome, however, suspending the Tribunal while waiting for ...
