Check out my newest article, The Daubert Double Standard, now in print at the Michigan State Law Review. Daubert has been an absolute disaster for the defense. The now decade-plus old law was supposed to make it tougher to use so-called expert testimony at trial. But the actual outcome was easy to predict: with regard to the state's evidence, nothing has changed. The courts simply rubberstamp any pseudo-expert the state tries to use. Worse yet, the courts impose the high Daubert hurdle on the defense, thus turning Daubert into a pro-state double standard. In my study of all appellate and SCOW cases in roughly the first decade of Daubert, the state is 134-0 against the defense.
