Your Expert Witness May Not Be an Expert - At Being an Expert Witness
June 26, 2019

MEMBER HIGHLIGHT -  Member and former SER President Richard Leisner authored a recent article titled "Your Expert Witness May Not Be an Expert – At Being an Expert Witness" emphasizing the dangers of an expert writing a report that does not comply with the specific requirements of federal rules of procedure. In the case highlighted, the court excluded the expert report under Rule 37 for failure to comply with Rule 26 and granted the defense's motion for summary judgment. A practicing lawyer at Trenam Law in Tampa Florida, Richie has written "more than 40 expert reports, mostly for cases in Federal Court." He will be a panelist at this year's conference in Saint Paul on the Writing an Expert Report & Testifying Differences: Arbitration, Deposition, and Court session.
