Expert witness fined $20K

In other news of testimony gone wrong, an expert witness for the defense in a medical malpractice case has been chastised by the trial judge and fined $20,000 for misstating a key aspect of a study relevant to the case. The judge found that the expert, Dr. Fred Hochberg of Massachusetts General Hospital, had wrongly professed familiarity with the details of the study. (Boston Globe/LexisOne; Peter Nordberg).
