Ross Tulman, Jerry DeNigris, and Jack Herrmann Hosted an Interactive Meeting for SER Members
March 28, 2024

ROUNDTABLE NEWS - SER Past President Ross Tulman, and long-time members Jerry DeNigris and Jack Herrmannhosted an interactive meeting for SER members on March 15th, titled "When & Why Does the Trier of Fact Hit the Off Switch?" Panelists shared their best practices while under oath. The focus was on gaining credibility consistently with panels, juries, and judges as well as other times, such as mediations, where an expert is not under oath. With hundreds of hours on the witness stand individually, each speaker agreed that the expert's obligation under oath is to the trier of fact. At the conclusion, SER member Roger M. Deitz, an experienced counsel, mediator, and arbitrator for over three decades, confirmed that credibility was key to a panel’s accepting expert testimony. He shared with members: "The amount of credibility an expert gains by answering questions, even when the answers may not be helpful to her or his  client, is enormous and materially enhances the impact of all the testimony."  For more SER member events, please check our calendar of Upcoming Events.
