State Legislation for Expert Witness Testimony - Standards of Admissibility

In 1923, Frye v. United States established a threshold for the admittance of an expert's testimony that was linked to the most established and accepted ideas proffered by the larger professional or academic community of which that expert was a member. Since then, the standards for admissibility of expert witness testimony have been constantly evolving on a state-by-state basis. This exploration of the Frye and Daubert standards illustrates past trends, present dispositions, and forecasts for the future, as these influential decisions continue to shape American litigation.
