    As a paralegal major I find the more I learn about what happens in the court room and what my perspective employer will expect of me enhances my learning experience and better prepares me for my paralegal career. This video was very interesting and informative!

    Very well explained. I'm not an attorney but since I work in a new and untested area of medicine, I am in court a lot and will definitely share this with my lawyers.

    IMO: A good expert witness would have received all the relevant facts and circumstances - to include the facts from the opposing side through recorded witness statements and depositions. He would compare that information (both sides) to the evidence and render a fact based pattern opinion and not one based on one sided bias. opinions not supported by independent evidence (of varying strength) are difficult / impossible to opine upon in a manner that is evidence based. This is an excellent technique for a expert witness who hasn't adequately prepared or been provided all the evidence...Great resource!

    Jeremy- Just had this happen in my last trial. What did I do? Just paused, looked over at the jury and smiled. They knew that if after changing or assuming the facts that favored my clients the expert still was not willing to change his testimony, he was nothing more than a paid advocate. Having said that, if you've already questioned him about his rates and fees- let's say he's been paid $16K for his prep and testimony, then "Mr. X, isn't true you have $16K reasons not to agree with me?"

    A blood choke renders the subject unconscious in just a few seconds. If the choke is applied for more than 20 seconds you have entered the lethal force range.

    What do you do if, in your example, the expert witness answers "no" to the question on whether the plaintiff's version of the facts would change his/her expert opinion/analysis?

      Jeremy Cave I honestly don't think it matters, I believe the idea is that you just want to have the subject broached for the jury

    What do you do if the expert has done his own independent tests.

    9:55 you call this a "powerful question": "If those facts are wrong, isn't it true that that might indeed affect the accuracy of your opinion?" I submit it's too timid, mealy-mouthed, and artificially phrased. Anything "might" affect it in theory. Try this instead: "And if the facts given to you by the defense turn out to be wrong, then your opinion would be wrong, wouldn't it - since you just said your opinion was based on the facts given to you?" That's a little more punchy.

    Ran out of space- bottom line, you don't want to make a big deal about it. Have a bit of fun with the ridiculous expert and then move on. The jury will "get it" :-)

    Next time, do it in a real courtroom or use a white background. The use of greenscreen here is poor; however, the content is great.
