Daubert Motions: Challenging Expert Opinions


Expert testimony can make or break your case - learn when and how to challenge opposing expert testimony.

The U.S. Supreme Court's 1993 Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals decision transformed the federal law governing expert testimony. Most states' courts apply Daubert to some extent. Every litigator needs to understand the impact of Daubert on expert testimony. You need the skills to exclude an opponent's expert evidence under Daubert (while protecting yours).
This topic will help you successfully challenge opposing expert testimony. Learn the basic concepts of the law governing admissibility of expert testimony. Prepare yourself for the proposed revisions to the federal rule. Get practical and concrete advice on how to bring and defend expert witness challenges under Daubert and the strategic and tactical concerns to build your case against a challenge.
