Why Did You File The Daubert?

Over the years, Innovative Science Solutions has provided our fair share of scientific support on litigation matters involving Daubert hearings. Specifically, we have worked on cases involving the following types of claims that have been evaluated in the context of Daubert rulings:

  • silicone breast implants and systemic autoimmune disease
  • welding rods and neurodegenerative disease
  • ephedra-containing products and cardiovascular events
  • cellular telephones and brain cancer
  • the phen-fen drug combination and cardiotoxicity

This work always makes for an assessment of interesting scientific and medical issues; however, more interesting than that is the dynamic interplay between counsel on opposing sides of the aisle.

I got together with my friend and colleague, Nathan Schachtman, an experienced litigator to develop a “dramatization” of a conversation between a plaintiff lawyer and a defense lawyer on either side of a Daubert motion. With a little help from a “text-to-talk” editor and some online animation, I think we came up with the essence of the two opposing view points.

Enjoy!
