While not ideal, unfavorable facts or insufficient data are often an unavoidable reality in many cases involving an expert opinion. How an expert deals with these situations can make or break a case. This session will explore how to strategize with counsel in acknowledging and analyzing weaknesses in a case which may affect an expert’s analysis and opinions.
Learning Objectives:

  1. Assess when to concede bad facts versus an absence of opinion through case examples
  2. Use techniques learned in this session on how to handle cross examination regarding bad facts
  3. Remain objective and protect credibility by avoiding ethical traps, bias and the appearance of favoritism.
