Neutral experts in Chattanooga

Chattanooga is attempting a pilot program of court-appointed neutral experts to evaluate the testimony of medical experts in malpractice cases. The local Trial Lawyers Association, of course, opposes any effort to give courts more accurate information. (The Chattanoogan, "Judge Thomas Leads Effort On Streamlining Malpractice Cases", Oct. 26; Oct. 26 press release; Bill Poovey, "Doctors, Lawyers Develop Credibility Test for Expert Testimony", AP, Oct. 27).
