RI lead paint sidelights

Jane Genova, who has blogged so extensively on the Rhode Island lead paint case, continues to provide post-trial coverage. A few tidbits we didn't relay in our earlier posts: defense lawyers wanted to explore the evidence that the lawsuit was conceived by attorneys at Motley Rice and then presented to Rhode Island officials for them to karaoke as a "public health initiative"; but the judge ruled that a line of questioning alerting juries to this was improperly prejudicial. A Columbia public health professor who was providing expert testimony for the plaintiffs declined to explicate his research methods, but educated guesswork about them is not impossible. More on the experts here.
