Expert testimony – Defense’s challenges go to weight — not admissibility


SKU: ADVja231. Category: .


Abstract: The resolution of a federal Rule 702 and Daubert motion in an ongoing complex litigation shows how a federal judge views the admissibility of expert testimony versus weight. This article summarizes why the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas ruled that several arguments against admissibility amounted to issues of weight that should be left to the jury. A sidebar highlights four factors that are considered in Daubert challenges and potential upcoming changes to Federal Rule of Evidence 702. VeroBlue Farms U.S., Inc. v. Wulf, et al., Civil Action 3:19-CV-0764-X (N.D. Tex. Mar. 13, 2023). Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, Inc., 509 U.S. 579 (1993).
