NCLC files amicus brief regarding reliability of expert testimony under Daubert

February 22, 2005

NCLC urged the highest court in Maryland to bring the state up-to-date by reaffirming that reliability is the sine qua non of all expert testimony. NCLC instructed that the trial courts must serve as gatekeepers to keep unreliable expert evidence from the jury. NCLC supported a uniform test or standard for reliability based on the seminal 1993 Supreme Court decision in Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
