Mass tort lawyers should invest the time to read the article from Jones Day lawyers: Let Data Speak Equally to All ..... This topic is going to appear more and more often because of the nature of evolving science, and the sometimes tight ties between litigation and the development of knowledge regarding a particular substance or product. The authors cover the caselaw pretty well, and also offer some interesting suggested rules for resolving these types of issues.
