As plaintiffs increasingly hire "expert" witnesses who advocate rather than present the fact-finder specialized knowledge or expertise, knowing how and when to identify, discredit or outright exclude questionable expert testimony is more valuable than ever.

 This report explores key legal techniques for evaluating expert witnesses and the credibility of their testimony, as well as useful tools for defendants to challenge such testimony. Topics include:

*Maximizing the MDL Daubert Process;

*Excluding Expert Opinion Impugning Corporate Ethics, Motive and State of Mind; *Deconstructing Plaintiffs' Peer-Reviewed Scientific Literature; *Excluding or Limiting FDA Regulatory Expert Opinion; and *Taking a Science Expert Deposition to Set Up a Daubert Motion

The authors of these articles, members of Kaye Scholer's leading Product Liability Litigation team, draw from their extensive experience as trial and national counsel across many types of complex product liability cases and consultations, including MDL proceedings.
