On November 16, 1998, WLF filed a brief in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, urging the Court to reconsider a decision upholding a $3 million products liability verdict that was based on “expert” medical testimony that should have been excluded because of its inherent unreliability. WLF argued that trial judges must be vigilant in excluding scientific testimony that amounts to nothing more than “junk science.”
