Saks article published in Iowa journal

June 03, 2010

An article by Regents’ Professor Michael Saks, entitled “Judging Admissibility,” has been published in the current issue of the Iowa Journal of Corporation Law. It is part of a symposium issue on “Compensation of Plaintiffs in Mass Securities Litigation.”

The aim of this article, according to the author, is to provide those thinking about the admissibility of economics expert testimony on damages in mass securities litigation under Daubert with a broader perspective on the law of expert evidence admissibility. The article looks at what courts have done about admissibility more generally, with other kinds of expertise, under varying tests, over a longer span of history.
