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.. ...

By Stephen M. Raffle, M.D.. An Expert Witness is a person who possesses information due to special education, training or experience who can assist the trier of fact in reaching a verdict. (In our judicial system, a "trier of fact" is generally a judge or jury). The term Expert Witness is generally used in civil litigation or criminal cases, and the names of Expert Witnesses who will testify on behalf of a plaintiff or defendant are disclosed to the opposing party and the Court. Details of this process are best deferred to an attorney.. See also What is Expert Testimony?. DISCLAIMER: The information provided on this website does not constitute legal or medical advice.

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 ...

Rule 706. Court-Appointed Expert Witnesses (a) Appointment Process. On a partys motion or on its own, the court may order the parties to show cause why expert witnesses should not be appointed and may ask the parties to submit nominations. The court may appoint any expert that the parties agree on and any of its own choosing. But the court may only appoint someone who consents to act. (b) Experts Role. The court must inform the expert of the experts duties. The court may do so in writing and have a copy filed with the clerk or may do so orally at a conference in which the parties have an opportunity to participate. The expert ...
Expert witness testimony supplied by the Financial Investigation Bureau (FIB) has helped conclude a major fraud and money laundering case.. A number of individuals were ultimately convicted of significant financial crimes by a London court, in part due to information and expertise provided by the FIB.. Lindani Mangena and his co-conspirators used a variety of scams to con unsuspecting victims out of an estimated 3.2 Million GBP. Most members of the group were found guilty of fraudulent trading, money laundering, and unauthorised investment business practises, and were sentenced to a combined total of 114 months in prison.. Mangena was found guilty of fraudulent trading, money laundering and carrying on an unauthorised investment business and was sentenced to 7 years imprisonment. His accomplices Dean Hinkson and Curtis Powell were both found guilty of communicating an invitation or inducement to engage in investment activity and were both given custodial sentences of 15 months.

Just last year, the Innocence Project of Texas exposed the work of Keith Pikett, a Fort Bend County Sheriffs deputy who made use of "dog-scent lineups" to link suspects to evidence retrieved from crime scenes. The Innocence Project report [ed note: see the pdf here], entitled Dog Scent Lineups: A Junk Science Injustice, called attention to the numerous wrongful accusations and convictions that resulted from this form of junk science. Even though the self-trained deputy did not have a scientific background, he was allowed time and time again to testify in criminal trials about the alleged science behind his lineup procedures. Piketts expert testimony was all junk and no science - and it was used repeatedly by prosecutors. In an encouraging move, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals recently reversed a case based on Piketts testimony. That move aside, prosecutors are still allowed to use charlatans like Pikett in Texas courtrooms ...
In most jurisdictions, the psychiatrist who provides expert opinions and the life care planner who prepares the LCP must adhere to the Daubert standard.31 The Daubert rule specifies that testimony in federal court offered by a scientific expert must be founded on a methodology that is scientifically valid. It is important that the theory or technique has been subjected to peer review and publication.53,54 The test for whether expert testimony is admissible is whether it will be reliable and relevant. In determining admissibility of expert testimony, the court must assess, among other things, whether the experts "theory or technique […] can be (and has been) tested, whether it has been subjected to peer review and publication, its known or potential rate of error, and the existence and maintenance of standards controlling the techniques operation" (Ref. 53, p 594), as well as its general acceptance within a relevant scientific community.. The Daubert standard, however, emphasizes that these ...
The Fifth District Appellate Court issued, on March 4, 2010, its third decision in the past three years on the requirements for the admissibility of vehicle photographs in automobile accident cases. The most recent decision is Ford v. Grizzle, 2010 Ill. App. LEXIS 109 (5th Dist. 2010), in which the Fifth District held that the trial court did not err in admitting photographs of the plaintiffs vehicle collision without expert testimony.. Ford is consistent with the Fifth Districts earlier opinions in Fronabarger v. Burns, 385 Ill. App.3d 560, 895 N.E. 2d 1125 (5th Dist. 2008), and in Jackson v. Seib, 372 Ill.App.3d 1060, 866 N.E.2d 663 (5th Dist.2007), in which the defendant succeeded in each case in having photographs of the plaintiffs vehicles admitted into evidence without expert testimony. The bases of the Fifth Districts reasoning in Ford, Fronabarger and Jackson were that the photographs were relevant to the nature and extent of the plaintiffs injuries and that the jury could assess ...
In Faulknor v. Shnayerson (273 A.D.2d 271 [2000]), the Second Department treated it as though expert testimony was necessary for both parts of the informed consent test. There, the Court held "a case of malpractice based on lack of informed consent may not be submitted to a jury in the absence of expert medical testimony to support the qualitative insufficiency of the consent i.e., that a reasonably prudent person in the patients position would not have undergone the treatment if fully informed." While there has been case law at the trial level that recognizes the apparent disparity between the Departments (Tullo v. Tartack, 325/98, 2002 WL 31925590 [N.Y. Sup. Ct. July 24, 2002]), the Second Department has never subsequently relied on Faulknor for this proposition. In addition, some subsequent cases seem to imply that the Second Department does not require expert testimony on the second prong of the analysis, but make no mention of Faulknor (see e.g., Sarwan v. Portnoy, 51 A.D.3d 655 [2nd Dept. ...
In deciding to admit expert opinion evidence under FRE 702, whether the experts theory has been tested, particularly in the medical or biological field, is central to finding whether it is sufficient reliable. But what if an experts theory cannot be ethically tested? Will this per se preclude admission under FRE 702? While not answering this precise question, the Eighth Circuit did examine a case in which a plaintiffs sole expert as to medical causation claimed that his theory could not be tested due to medical ethics. The case provides a foundation for thinking about some of the problems this type of problem engenders. In the case, the plaintiffs Polski sued defendant nasal spray provider Quigley alleging they had been injured as a result of using a nasal spray (Cold-Eeze) made and distributed by the defendant for the relief of cold symptoms. In addition to easing their breathing, they claimed that the spray left them with a "severe and permanent impairment of their senses of taste and ...
Expert witnesses are critical to the courts work.. Typical cases on my own docket-silicone breast implants, repetitive stress injuries, diethylstilbestrol (DES), tobacco, and asbestos-are but a few of the litigations rich in scientific and abstruse medical issues.. Although modern jurors are perceptive, devoted, and thoughtful, they, like the judges, are laypersons and have only the most general notion of science as it relates to particular cases. Expert witnesses are needed to analyze complex scientific issues in the light of the evidence and to present their scientifically based opinions in an understandable way.. Among many kinds of experts that have appeared before me, I have a particular fondness for neurologists. Their testimony is understandable, generally reliable, and usually crisp and to the point. Their opinions are also usually backed by objective tests. In a series of the repetitive stress injury trials alleging injury to the upper extremities and spinal column caused by use of ...

At a minimum, this holding on literal falsity puts the 4th Circuit in conflict with everyone elses definition of literal falsity, where juries are routinely allowed to resolve battles of the experts in finding literal falsity. E.g., Hot Wax, Inc. v. S/S Car Care, 1999 WL 966094 (N.D. Ill. 1999) (where a product containing mineral seal oil was sold as "wax" for cars, a jury found the claim literally false, rejecting several experts testimony that "wax" could be defined broadly, in favor of the plaintiffs expert testimony that mineral seal oil was plainly not "wax" because it lacked the basic characteristics of wax); Eastman Chemical Co. v. Plastipure, Inc., 775 F.3d 230 (5th Cir. 2014) (taking one side in a scientific debate can be literally false when the ads are directed to the general public, not to experts to whom the details and limitations of a study are disclosed); Kraft General Foods, Inc. v. Del Monte Corp., 28 U.S.P.Q.2d 1457 (S.D.N.Y. 1993) (featuring competing expert definitions of ...

U.S. Tax Court Judge David Laro frequently has cautioned experts not to give in to hiring attorneys who want to shape the appraisal. Although federal and state discovery rules offer some protection for attorney-expert communication, there is a risk of exposure and with it a risk of damage to the experts work product and reputation. A recent Section 1031 case, which Judge Laro handled, illustrates what happens when the communication is discovered. Read more >> ...

Determining whether race, sex, or other juror characteristics influence how capital case jurors vote is difficult. Jurors tend to vote for death in more egregious cases and for life in less egregious cases no matter what their own characteristics. And a jurors personal characteristics may get lost in the process of deliberation because the final verdict reflects the jurys will, not the individual jurors. Controlling for the facts likely to influence a jurors verdict helps to isolate the influence of a jurors personal characteristics. Examining each jurors first sentencing vote reveals her own judgment before the majority works its will. Race, religion, and how strongly the juror believes death is the appropriate punishment for murder influence a capital jurors first vote, which usually determines the final vote. Because black jurors are rarely a majority of the jurys members, majority rule usually means white rule.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys rested their case Tuesday morning in the involuntary manslaughter trial of Michael Jacksons personal physician.. The final witness was government expert Dr. Steven Shafer, who was briefly recalled to the stand to reiterate his earlier testimony that Dr. Conrad Murray probably left an intravenous drip of the anesthetic propofol running into Jacksons veins after the singers heart stopped.. Shafer refuted a defense experts testimony that levels of the drug found in Jacksons urine proved he was wrong. In that analysis, Dr. Paul White relied on an outdated 1988 study, Shafer said. In fact, more recent research on the drug supports his hypothesis on what happened in the hours leading up to the pop stars death, Shafer testified.. INTERACTIVE: Conrad Murray witnesses: Whos who.

The ALJ may request expert testimony from medical and vocational experts. These "experts" may or may not have firsthand knowledge of [FM, CFID, myofascial pain, systemic Lupus, RSD/CRPS, Lymes disease, GWS, or other invisible illness.] In my experience, finding a doctor who is aware of these conditions was difficult, so you can well imagine the knowledge base of the ALJs "expert witness." The laws protect the claimant to some extent in that the ALJ must give more weight to the opinion of the claimants treating doctor than to the opinion resulting from a one-time medical exam requested by SSA or their team. However, the judges expert witnesses have more impact on the ALJs decision when the claimants physician has not adequately addressed and documented key issues in the claimants medical record. This is why it is so important to make sure your medical records reflect the continuing disabling effect of chronic pain ...

The Handbook of Eyewitness Psychology presents a survey of research and legal opinions from international experts on the rapidly expanding scientific literature addressing the accuracy and limitations of eyewitnesses as a source of evidence for the courts. For the first time, extensive reviews of factors influencing witnesses of all ages-children, adults, and the elderly-are compiled in a single pair of volumes. The disparate research currently being conducted in eyewitness memory in psychology, criminal justice, and legal studies is coherently presented in this work. Controversial topics such as the use of hypnosis, false and recovered memories, the impact of stress, and the accuracy of psychologically impaired witnesses are expertly examined. Leading eyewitness researchers also discuss the subjects of conversational memory, alibi evidence, witness credibility, facial memory, earwitness testimony, lineup theory, and expert testimony. The impact of witness testimony in court is considered, and each

Metropolitan News-Enterprise. Friday, November 22, 2013. Page 1. S.C. Says Expert Cannot Challenge Breathalyzer Technology. By JUSTIN LEVINE, Staff Writer. A trial judge overseeing a DUI case properly excluded expert testimony that challenged the overall reliability of breath-alcohol testing machines, the California Supreme Court has ruled.. In a unanimous opinion written by Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye, the court held that a defendant charged with driving with a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 percent or more, in violation of Vehicle Code 23152(b), can argue that a particular breathalyzer machine used to convict him was faulty. But an expert witness cannot challenge the overall reliability of such devices since the Legislature determined as a matter of policy that they are reliable for purposes of evidential use in a criminal prosecution, the court said. The case involved Terry Vangelder, who was pulled over by the California Highway Patrol for speeding and consented to take two tests using an ...
This chapter explores the analogy proposed by Thomas Reid between testimony and sense perception. It begins by trying to arrive at a correct understanding of the two principles he identifies as fundamental to our acquiring information from others: the principles of veracity and credulity. Next, it investigates the similarities Reid finds between perception and testimony considered as mechanisms of belief formation. Finally, it investigates whether the analogy between perception and testimony can be extended from psychology into epistemology. In particular, it discusses whether beliefs based on testimony, like beliefs based on sense perception, may be regarded as epistemologically basic or foundational. It concludes that although Reids answer is yes (testimonial fundamentalism), the correct answer is no (testimonial reductionism).

Veröffentlicht am 5. März 2017. No one can legislate historical truth, said Timothy Garton Ash commenting on the bill voted in the French parliament in 2006 criminalizing denial of the Armenian genocide.[1] Yet, historical truth has been often legislated and decided upon outside of the frameworks of professional historiography. Law makes history and writes the past, going beyond responding to historical change.[2] Although the issue of history in the courtroom is problematic and a research area on its own, the courts nevertheless produce the documentation which can open new perspectives relevant for the field of contemporary history as well as memory studies.. The law is an important aspect of the state-sanctioned memory politics in contemporary Serbia, centering on the reinterpretation of the socialist period and the Second World War as the Yugoslav main legitimacy source. Unlike the majority of the post-socialist countries which have established institutes of national remembrance and museums ...
Amid the extensive press coverage of KSMs Gitmo "confessions" of multiple horrific crimes-including the planning of 9/11 and the beheading of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl-the Pentagons transcript blacked out what he started to say about his treatment (torture) in the four years he was in the secret CIA prison system. Also redacted was his written statement about the abuses.. It had already been widely reported that he was "waterboarded" (made to believe he was drowning) soon after his CIA interrogation began; and it is highly probable that his future confessions in that black site were facilitated by additional "coercive interrogations." There is external evidence that KSM did indeed commit some of the atrocities in the admissions he repeated in the Gitmo ghost courtroom, but the Bush administration remains intent on not disclosing the methods used to get him to talk because they are very likely to be "crimes against humanity" in international law.. His CIA interrogators, along ...
This is the second of six programs in the FJCs Science in the Courtroom series. Professor Edward S. Mocarski, Jr., of Stanford University Medical School, builds upon his lecture in Part One of the series (Core Concepts of Microbiology) by explaining the basic recombinant DNA and gene-cloning methods used in the field of biotechnology. Mocarski explains how the universality of the genetic code makes it possible for scientists to recombine DNA, that is, take DNA from one organism and move it into another. He also explains how recombinant DNA concepts are used in the "expression" of human proteins into bacteria, a process in which a human coding sequence is taken and inserted into a bacterial context, allowing the bacteria to produce abundant supplies of a "foreign protein" (foreign to the bacteria) that can be of commercial and therapeutic use.. ...
A suspect held in custody by police in Kentucky allegedly tried to break free from authorities in a mad dash for freedom. But when 41-year-old Christopher Bakanauskas attempted to flee from his cell at the Jefferson County Courthouse, he reportedly ran straight into a packed courtroom full of police
If you are at all familiar witht he presupositions of psychiatry and psycholigy, you would note the lack of concept of sin; sorry, but thats humanistic. How familiar are you with the literature of those disciplines? Having rotated on pspychiatric services and tended such patients I, while no expert, am no novice. That there are honest and decent psychiatrists does not change the facts of the underpinnings of the profession. Legal testimony, and DSM-5 illustrate this rather graphically; read Szasz on sluggish schizophrenia and then tell me where you stand. BTW per your point 4 with deceasing reimbursements the pressure to branch out into other arenas to bring in income is what I was referrring to; expert testimony isnt given gratis. This is not unique to psychiatry, as too many docs ar wiling to serve as what we calldisability whores in getting able-bodied patients on the dole, and the ubiquitous Dr Feelgood types who are but licensed pushers. The difference is that the latter two examples ...

While different circumstances call for different approaches, the consistent element in each and every spinal injury case is liability. To put it in simpler terms, you must be able to determine who is responsible for your injury AND present evidence that supports your assertion in order to have a successful claim. An attorney can help.. For instance, if you sustained your injury in a car accident, your attorney should investigate the crash site and analyze medical and police reports, witness statements, expert testimony, and other key pieces of evidence to prove liability. If a defective product caused your injury, your attorney must show that the defect exists and is behind your injury.. However, if you were injured at your workplace, then you and your attorney may file a workers compensation claim to get coverage for medical bills and lost wages. If a third party was involved, you may collect additional damages through a lawsuit against them.. To determine the best path for you, consult with a ...
Matt from CT • August 6, 2007 3:48 PM @DBH. And others advocating electronic voting machines. Paper ballots can be understood by a "reasonable man" and can be put before a jury without any expert testimony necessary. Yes, there might be judgement calls -- but we have a legal system designed to decide issues of fact like that. Our canvassing systems in place follow very close parrallels to the reasonable man standard.. With mechanical voting machines, a fair amount of the population could readily understand them, and most of the population could be plucked from the street and would understand and see how the machines physically work with a brief amount of training about them. So they are easily verifiable.. You cant say the same about computers. Id postulate most people lack the aptitude, even if you sent them to college level courses for several years, to properly evaluate their function.. Even among experts, how do you assure the kernel was not subverted during the balloting? Never mind a ...
5. Applying pre-Williams jurisprudence, the Court observes that neither Melendez-Diaz nor Bullcoming requires that every analyst involved in a testing process must testify in order to admit a forensic report into evidence and satisfy confrontation rights. Nor do the cases suggest that the primary analyst involved in the original testing must testify when a different, sufficiently knowledgeable expert is available to testify. Moreover, the Court notes that it would take confrontation law to a level that is not only impractical, but, equally importantly, is inconsistent with prior law addressing the admissibility of an experts testimony in respect of the substance of underlying information that he or she used in forming his or her opinion. By way of background, the Court notes that, in determining when the facts underlying a forensic expert opinion may be disclosed to the jury, New Jerseys evidence case law has focused on whether the witness is knowledgeable about the particular information used ...
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 22, 2014 http://www.resource4thepeople.com/defectivedrugs/SSRI-Birth-Defects.html. Resource4thePeople announced today that a key ruling is being awaited in litigation* alleging that birth defects have been caused by the use of Zoloft and other antidepressants known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs)..

Humes argument concerning miracles is interpreted by making approximations to terms in Bayess theorem. This formulation is then used to analyse the impact of multiple testimony. Individual testimonies which are non-miraculous in Humes sense can in principle be accumulated to yield a high probability both for the occurrence of a single miracle and for the occurrence of at least one of a set of miracles. Conditions are given under which testimony for miracles may provide support for the existence of God.. ...

In the 103-page Hemp Oil For Healthy Skin Vape decision he shredded Ottawas defence of the regulations and the disinformation propagated by police and fire cannabinoid doctor officials. "Many expert witnesses were so imbued with a belief for or against marijuana ? almost a religious fervour ? that the court had to approach such evidence with a significant degree of caution and skepticism" the judge added. Hemp Oil For Healthy Skin Vape he completely dismissed the RCMP expert testimony on home invasions violence and the diversion of pot by organized crime..

In the field of computer forensics, it often is difficult for the examiner to conclude "who" a particular computer user was. A computer forensics examination may identify significant evidence including metadata about "what" was found on a computer or other digital media and "when" it was placed there. However, it is a separate question about "who" accessed or placed the content on the computer. For example, in a household with multiple potential users of a computer, how certain can the examiner be about who accessed a particular file? Sometimes the user may be inferred by the content. For example, if the computer forensic examination confirms that an individual sent and reviewed an email account linked to the individual moments before and after a key event (such as downloading a file or drafting a particular document), it may be logical to infer that the same user was responsible for the key event. The Eighth Circuit recently considered a challenge to the admission of a computer forensic expert ...
The curvature is now a full 90 degrees. The Verapimil cream has had absolutely no effect, in fact the results of the injury are worsening. I must now travel 150 miles each way, taking a full day out of my life and career each time, to a well known and experienced specialist in Houston who will be INJECTING medication into the shaft of the penis with a needle and some dye in order to find out the extent of the damage. The specialist has stated the neither the Verapamil cream nor an injection of Verapimil will fix my problem. On my first visit to him he stated that he has never seen such a severe deformnity from Peyronies. The specialist is going to do a CT scan in September to evaluate the type of surgery required, he needs to make the decision whether he can repair my damage or if it will require a prosthesis. Whatever it takes, I doubt wheter the causative problem will be changed, namely Pfizer and "Interent" distribution of this and other highly dangerous drugs. ...
The vast majority of the human genome does not code for proteins and, until now, did not seem to contain defined gene-regulatory elements. Why evolution would maintain large amounts of useless DNA had remained a mystery, and seemed wasteful. It turns out, however, that there are good reasons to keep this DNA. Results from the ENCODE project show that most of these stretches of DNA harbour regions that bind proteins and RNA molecules, bringing these into positions from which they cooperate with each other to regulate the function and level of expression of protein-coding genes. In addition, it seems that widespread transcription from non-coding DNA potentially acts as a reservoir for the creation of new functional molecules, such as regulatory RNAs. ...

J Bone Joint Surg Am. 2010 92A; 15: 2533-43 This article is a retrospective review of the complications of growing rod treatment of early onset scoliosis (as defined by Dickson: starting before the age of 5 years, regardless of aetiology). Records from the Growing Spine Study Group database of 140 patients with a minimum 2-year follow-up, who had a total of 897 operations between 1987 and 2005, were evaluated. Seventy-one patients received single and 69 double rod constructs implanted either in a subcutaneous or submuscular plane. The complications were divided into wound, implant, alignment and general surgical or medical problems. Overall, 58% of patients had at least one complication. The risk of complications decreased by 13% for each year older the patient was at the time of the first operation, and increased by 24% for every additional operation performed. Not all complications needed immediate surgery; many problems could be delayed until the next planned operation. Implant complications ...

The drug was not administered to plaintiff but to her mother. While it might be argued that the mother was injured at the time she ingested DES, a fact question exists as to whether the unborn child being carried by the mother was injured at that time or later. …. … It is as though the DES had a time bomb affect on the body. A general rule that ingestion and injury are simultaneous ignores the fact that some drugs have no immediate effect on the body and is premised on an absolutist theory that represents a primitive scientific view. The question of when an injury occurs is empirical in nature. If the issue is problematic, as in this case, a trial or hearing, where expert testimony can be presented, is necessary to resolve the matter. …. … The record does not reveal whether, on September 1, 1977, modern science could have determined that she was afflicted with any malady or that cancer was about to strike; yet, on that date, according to the majority, she lost her right to ever bring ...

My previous post began a conversation about applying the evidentiary rules for admissibility of scientific studies and expert testimony to the emerging studies on the health and environmental effects of nanomaterials, all in the context of the toxic tort litigation that is soon to come. This post will continue that conversation by looking at the legal rules to determine the reliability and scientific validity of such studies. In particular, this post will look at the Frye rule and its continuing viability in a significant minority of jurisdictions.. Under the older Frye rule, reliability was determined solely by whether the scientific technique has achieved "general acceptance in the particular field in which it belongs." Frye v. United States, 293 F. 1013 (D.C. Cir. 1923). States that have adopted and continue to apply the Frye test for admissibility of expert evidence have further clarified and refined the rule. Thus, the Minnesota Supreme Court stated in Goeb v. Tharaldson, 615 N.W.2d 800, ...

Through advocacy, expert testimony and research, PHIs Center for Climate Change and Health supported the groundbreaking passage of 2016 California legislation, SB 32 and SB 1383, the most aggressive climate change bills in the country.. In 2016, the State Legislature solidified Californias role as a leader in policy changes to slow climate change with the passage of these two bills, buoyed by PHIs advocacy and research that integrates the long-term consequences climate change will have on vulnerable populations. On the local level, PHIs Center for Climate Change and Health championed a ban on coal handling in Oakland, CA, citing the detrimental effects nonrenewable energy has in exacerbating climate change.. In 2015, Dr. Linda Rudolph, of PHIs Center for Climate Change and Health, played a key role in advocating for passage of SB 350, a new California law that will increase the states renewable energy use to 50% and double energy efficiency in buildings by 2030-including testifying before ...
based on informed consent. Instead, the case was brought on the theory that the physicians failure to obtain the patients informed consent constituted substandard, negligent medical care. The forensic psychiatrists expert testimony emphasized that the pro forma signing of a consent form did not constitute true informed consent, especially in light of the physicians alleged disregard of the patients expressed wishes and their inaccurate representation of the risks and benefits of the approach she preferred. The psychiatrist also explained to the jury how Meadors life history left her vulnerable to experiencing the denial of informed consent as a highly traumatic event. Having coped since childhood with serious illnesses in her family, Meador had viewed doctors and nurses as nurturing figures who helped her gain control of potentially tragic situations. She had learned that choice was still possible even amidst illness and death. She had even been inspired to become a nurse herself and to ...

By Henry T. Greely, Edelman Johnson Professor of Law, Stanford Law School; Professor (by courtesy) of Genetics, Stanford Medical School; Director, Program in Neuroscience & Society, Stanford University. The recent meeting at Harvard on neuroimaging, pain, and the law demonstrated powerfully that the offering of neuroimaging as evidence of pain, in court and in administrative hearings, is growing closer. The science for identifying a likely pattern of neuroimaging results strongly associated with the subjective sensation of pain keeps improving. Two companies (and here) recently were founded to provide electro-encephalography (EEG) evidence of the existence of pain. And at least one neuroscientist has been providing expert testimony that a particular neuroimaging signal detected using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is useful evidence of the existence of pain, as discussed recently in Nature.. If nothing more is done, neuroimaging evidence of pain will be offered, accepted, rejected, ...
