The Knowledge Group Has Scheduled a Live Webcast on "Daubertization" in Product Liability Litigation

The Knowledge Group has scheduled a live webcast. This two-hour event is scheduled on October 14, 2016 from 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm (ET).

Online PR News – 07-October-2016 – New York City, New York, United States – Event Synopsis:

Under Federal Rule of Evidence 702, district courts as gatekeepers have substantial discretion over the admissibility of expert testimonies in federal court cases. However, with the ever changing landscape of product liability litigation, district courts' efficiency in performing their gatekeeping duties may come into question.

In Carlson v. Bioremedi Therapeutic Systems, Inc., the Fifth Circuit concurred that district courts must conduct an on-the-record Daubert inquiry and provide reasons for the admission of the expert testimony. The Carlson decision is very significant for both plaintiffs and defendants as it would establish procedural requirements for gatekeepers to adhere in any case admission of expert opinion is involved. Thus, exploring all the possible litigation strategies for assessing the credibility of expert testimonies is very essential to avoid potential pitfalls and risks.

In this two-hour LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will help the audience understand the fundamental aspects of this significant topic.
