A Daubert Hearing on Hedonic Damage Testimony
An ideal case to study the Daubert decision and the admissibility of hedonic damage testimony.
This CD comes from one of the country's leading expert economists. Using a straightforward case which challenged the admissibility of expert testimony, Thomas Ireland provides you with all relevant documentation to Janice Christofferson v. City of Great Falls and demonstrates how Daubert affected the decision to exclude expert testimony. This is an ideal case to study the Daubert decision and the admissibility of hedonic damage testimony. The two experts were the only witnesses in the hearing and the issue was straightforward--whether or not hedonic damage testimony met the scientific standards required for admissibility in the trial. The judge provided an extended narrative with his decision that hedonic damage testimony was not admissible. The briefs on both sides seem well focused on the issues at hand. Both sides developed their positions in a straightforward way and a decision was made on the basis of the positions that were presented without distracting side issues. A great resource for any lawyer or expert witness.
