ABSTRACT : The following are examples of actual trials in which I cross-examined the opposing parties expert witness: 1. The investigating office failed to pass the Texas Drivers Handbook Test in a multiple fatality accident on Interstate 10. 2. The Plaintiffs Economists opinions about economic forecasting may not be any more reliable than the flip of a coin. 3. If the factual information that the Plaintiffs Attorneys furnish to their economist is not reliable, then then Plaintiffs Attorneys Economists testimony is not admissible. 4. Cross-examining opposing counsel on attorneys fees when opposing counsel is an Irishman from New York who attended Harvard Law School and is a senior trial attorney i the largest firm in Boston. 5. Some thoughts about the selection of the expert witnesses and consulting experts and dual capacity witnesses.


Forensic and other expert witnesses, attorneys and others who would like learn more about trial cross examination tactics that may not be common knowledge.
