The Gatekeeper Has a New Set of Keys: A Review of the Reference Manual on Scientific Evidence

TASA ID: 1111

Understanding, preparing and presenting medical information, as well as responding to the conclusions and opinions from opposing counsel's experts, can be a daunting task for an attorney....Judges are faced with the same issues in determining what science and technical information can be admitted in the cases for which they are presiding.  However, guidance is available to both judges and attorneys.

Scientific Evidence and Causation of Toxicity

TASA ID: 1111

Establishing causation is a critical - if not the most important - task when allegations of harm are made.  This is particularly true for adverse consequence arising from illicit drugs, pharmaceuticals, dietary supplements, and other chemicals.  Causation of adverse health effects and even wrongful death requires more than demonstrating an association or connection.  Knowing whether or not there is a causal link between a toxicant and a claimed adverse health effect is important for both plaintiffs and defendants.

Autonomous Vehicles

TASA ID: 2246

Driverless vehicles, or as they are called autonomous vehicles, are a major topic of interest these days.  A self-driving vehicle offers many advantages to the public, especially to the elderly and people with physical impairments who otherwise would not be able to drive. Then there is the issue that autonomous vehicles do not get drunk or become drowsy, and are not distracted by cell phones or children in the back seat. Thus they should, in principle, reduce the incidence of accidents and injuries to occupants. Another advantage suggested by the concept’s supporters is that by controlling speed and vehicle spacing patterns on highways, better overall fuel economy can be achieved and CO2 emissions reduced.
