Louisiana expert witness reform



It's not as if the Bayou State regularly produces good news on lawsuit reform, but a new measure applauded by Fred Shumate, executive director of Louisiana Lawsuit Abuse Watch, sounds like an exception: S.B. 308 "would establish a uniform system for eliminating 'junk science' and nonexpert witnesses from the courtroom. ... This legislation is similar to laws passed recently in Georgia, Mississippi and Michigan, and is already being called a model for possible legislation in West Virginia."
