Derek Stikeleather - Blog HeadshotThe bane of defense counsel is hearing the court say, "It goes to the weight of the evidence" or "It's a jury question" in response to a carefully prepared Daubert challenge to an especially unreliable expert opinion. Recent changes to Federal Rule of Evidence 702 take direct aim at such permissive decisions as "wrongly decided."

Goodell DeVries partner Derek Stikeleather will address these developments in his presentation, "Using Recent Changes to Daubert and FRE 702 to Support Exclusion of Expert Testimony," at The Trial Network's Litigation Lessons Under the Sonoran Sky program, to be held April 28-30, 2022. The session will share trial techniques that employ the most recent developments in Daubert law to keep unreliable opinion testimony out of the courtroom.
