You Think You Have Had Problems With An Expert?

Expert witnesses. Can’t live with ’em. Can’t live without ’em. Can’t kill ’em.

Buy me a drink sometime and I will tell you expert witness stories that will make your head spin. Or, let me buy you a drink and I will bore you with the same stories.

But I must confess that I never had an expert I had difficulty reaching because he was in jail. That’s right: jail. Read the opinion.

The Court said “[t]he fact that plaintiff’s attorney chose an incarcerated health professional to determine if a meritorious cause existed and had difficulty communicating with him because of his incarceration does not amount to good cause.”

I wonder why this doctor was in jail. I wonder if he was in jail when he was hired. I wonder if the lawyer knew he was in jail when he hired him. And, I wonder, wonder, wonder, wonder who, who wrote the book of love.

Thanks Evan for finding this opinion for us.
