Craig Brodsky of Goodell DeVries joined Eric Peterson, P.E. of WDP Associates to present a discussion of "Is the Science All Wet? Strategies for Surviving a Daubert Challenge in Construction Cases Involving Water Leakage and Consequential Damages." The presentation was part of the annual meeting of the Defense Lawyers Association (DCDLA).
Craig and Eric discussed expert testimony rules and water damage case examples from D.C., Maryland, Virginia, and federal courts. They also looked at testing methods and explored ASTM E2128, "Standard Guide for Evaluating Water Leakage of Building Walls," in detail. Their presentation explained how an E2128 investigation may proceed and how this process could affect Daubert challenges in court.
