Expert Troubles? Look No Further Than to Sir Isaac Newton

Sir Isaac Newton

Experts.

Love ’em.

Hate ’em.

But you need ’em. Particularly in complex litigation matters, including, many construction cases.

But how do you keep that wily opposing expert in line when he or she:

  1. Has more technical knowledge than you; and
  2. Has testified in deposition and at trial more times than you can shake a stick at?

According to our own Roger Hughes, in an article published this month in the Contra Costa Lawyer, Cross-Examining a Forensic Expert, you need only turn to the wisdom of Sir Isaac Newton, father of today’s modern scientific method.

For a fascinating look at the life of Sir Isaac Newton and other things space-related – and if you have a Netflix subscription – take a look at Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey hosted by reknown astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.
