UK pediatrician faces professional sanctions for bogus expert testimony

Sir Roy Meadow put several innocent women behind bars by testifying with "misleading and flawed" evidence that several infant deaths must have been murder. The General Medical Council is considering sanctions, including stripping him of professional credentials. ("Paediatrician's 'flawed evidence'", BBC, Jun. 21) (via Skeptico). Compare and contrast New Jersey, which bans "retaliatory action" for such wrongful testimony.
