Science in the courtroom isn’t, or shouldn’t be, a process that can be gamed. The idea is not to put forward expert opinions that will work for every case and that resist testing and evaluation. It is in fact the opposite. The science must be the science, not a strategy. The nature of science is testing, probing and questioning, not insulation from these things. The no-threshold, no alternative cause approach defies all of this.
So, while these types of expert opinions may seem like a dream to some plaintiff’s attorneys, in reality they’re straight-up losers. The Schulz court granted summary judgment to the defendants and dismissed the case.
