Tanenbaum Keale LLP associate Timothy Freeman will be presenting at the New Jersey Defense Association’s 56th Annual Convention on Friday, June 24, in Newport, Rhode Island. The CLE program focuses on a proposed amendment to Federal Rule of Evidence 702, which could become effective on December 1, 2023, if the U.S. Supreme Court and Congress approve.

Freeman’s presentation will focus on how the amendment would clarify the standard for admissibility of expert testimony in federal courts. This potentially landmark change in product liability and mass tort litigation would strengthen the trial courts’ gatekeeping role and force proponents of proffered expert testimony to establish by a preponderance of the evidence that it meets the requirements of Rule 702.
