Mayer Brown Legal Update
When does an expert witness have an obligation to weigh competing studies and explain why she chose to rely on one study rather than another? On the one hand, this decision-making process goes to the core of whether an expert has employed a sound methodology in reaching her conclusions—a requirement that district courts must police under Daubert. But on the other hand, the selection of studies could be viewed as going to weight, not admissibility, and thus the jury, not the district court or the expert, should decide which study to credit.

Mayer Brown Legal Update
Under Federal Rule of Evidence 702 and Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, Inc., 509 U.S. 579 (1993), district courts serve as gatekeepers for the admission of expert testimony. District courts often have wide discretion in this realm, sometimes holding Daubert hearings, sometimes not. So how, in light of this discretion and faced with a cold record, can a court of appeals determine whether a district court adequately performed its gatekeeping duties?
