A Forgotten Fact is News: Researching Expert Witnesses
Duration: 63 minutes
In Following the Equator, published in 1897, Mark Twain observed that “…a forgotten fact is news when it comes again.” In Twain’s time, facts were more easily “forgotten” and then rediscovered. With modern technology and the great information highway, it’s much less likely that facts remain forgotten. As attorneys, you have an obligation to make the best use of that technology to discover those forgotten or hidden facts. And when it comes to Expert Witness, those forgotten facts can make all the difference. In recent months, multimillion dollar verdicts have been overturned and expert witnesses have been sentenced for perjury—all with what the expert had hoped were “forgotten facts.” Learn to uncover unflattering facts or successful daubert challenge strategies using the latest in technological advancements. In an age when falsifying credentials is all too common (1 in 10), attorneys must not only vet the opposing experts but their own as well.
