Law360, New York (July 23, 2010, 5:36 PM EDT) -- Bringing a Daubert challenge is one of the biggest sticks a defense attorney can wield in high-stakes litigation, where expert witnesses can make or break a case. While persuading a judge to toss expert testimony isn't easy, there are steps attorneys can take to advance their cause, lawyers say.
The Daubert motion aims to exclude expert testimony by applying the standards of admissibility set by the U.S. Supreme Court in its 1993 decision in Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals.
