Industry News

Claims of fake news are now commonplace within the press. The accusations of untruths continue to span the internet, questioning the source of facts and figures. In this ‘post-truth’ era, questions are being raised as to whether this has impacted the value of the expert witness’s opinion.

In most, if not all cases, the consultant-expert should be retained by the attorney rather than by the client. This will give you better control of the relationship. Similarly, retention by counsel of the consultant will better ensure that the attorney work product doctrine will attach to the work performed by the consultant.

An “expert witness” is sometimes called to a legal case because they have the proper training and experience to bring context to a piece of evidence. This expertise might help the judge and jury make a decision. See what qualifies someone as an expert and what they can bring to a trial.

The modern mugshot, with a frontal and profile image apiece, was devised by the famous French criminalist Alphonse Bertillon in the late 19th century. For more than a century, it has provided law enforcement with a way to catalog and keep track of repeat offenders and suspects. Now, there is a new mugshot for a new age.
