Comment by CyberGroup[edit]

The history stated that Daubert went from a relevancy standard to a reliability standard, but that is not accurate. The current standard is relevancy and reliability. Furthermore, I have never seen "general acceptance" referred to as a relevancy standard.

Research on Daubert as a standard turns up many debates about whether it is a liberal or conservative standard, which seemed important to note after describing Frye as conservative.

A discussion of the history of the Daubert standard is not complete without reference to the “Daubert Trilogy” that refined and clarified the reach of Daubert. CyberGroup 15:07, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

Comment by[edit]

This article is either grossly plagerized from, or vice-versa. Someone really should look into that - Nat — Preceding undated comment added 04:26, June 5, 2006


Could we have a pronunciation of "Daubert" please? It's not obvious to this Brit.Cutler (talk) 21:28, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

I have added that as a section to the article on the case. I did not add it to this one, as I suspect the two will become joined one day. (talk) 21:07, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Litigation science[edit]

If I understand this interesting article correctly, the Daubert contains, according to Alex Kozinski, a judge with the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, a "'very significant' consideration when evaluating the admissibility of experts [...] whether their testimony would reflect analyses or data developed in the course of independent research versus those produced 'expressly' for use in a trial." According to the article, the latter has come to be known as litigation science. Should this be included in the Definition section, or where would be a good place for this? — Sebastian 21:33, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Maybe a good place for that is at Forensic science. I will for now create a section there, just to have a target for the redirect page Litigation science. Please adjust as appropriate. — Sebastian 21:40, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

An explanation for the dense?[edit]

From the language quoted from the decision, it sounds like the Court intended/expected the Daubert standard to lower the bar to get juries to hear expert testimony compared to the Frye test, but the rest of the article seems to indicate that it had the opposite effect. Anyone who knows why willing to add a little bit of explanation for this to the article? (talk) 14:42, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
