Most advocates of “tort reform” seek to cap jury awards for injury by hazardous products and medical malpractice. They decry “junk science”, implying that plaintiffs’ cases are based on invalid research or opinions of unqualified witnesses. Based on his experience as an expert witness, the author exposes the lies, plagiarism and biases of witnesses hired by large corporations to defend them in product liability lawsuits. Actual transcripts from depositions and trials are quoted to reveal the huge amounts of money paid to these witnesses and their willingness to say what the lawyers tell them to say. The book concludes with an examination of alternative proposals to tort reform that would put more money in the pockets of the injured and less in the pockets of overpaid lawyers and witnesses.

"The Expert Witness Scam by Leon S. Robertson" This is a thought provoking and sometimes humerous look at the judicial system and automobile industry in the U.S. Mr.Robertson does outstanding work and this book should be read by anyone considering buying a car.
