“Remarkable” Expert Testimony to be Archived by Medical Association

The American Academy of Emergency Medicine, concerned about “physicians who seem willing to make any statement, no matter how outrageous, in support of a malpractice claim [in order to] profit handsomely,” has created a new archive of remarkable testimony.

The group is asking its members to submit examples of testimony that is especially “farfetched, unbelievable or just plain wrong,” as well as especially insighful or helpful testimony.

The group has so far listed one case, in which a St. Louis doctor testified to three “facts” the group considered unreliable.

Hat tip: DrTony and Kevin, M.D.. There are some pretty strong opinions about the case in the comments section on Kevin, M.D.
