Decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court

Daubert Decision - Pretty much the watershed decision addressing "junk science" in the court room. In this case expert witness testimony was excluded because it was not based on peer-reviewed and published references or reproducible experimental evidence with a well-understood error-rate.
West Virginia Univ. Hospitals, Inc. v. Casey - The court ruled that expert witnesses services would only be reimbursed to the prevailing party at the rate of $30/day. Scalia, J., delivered the opinion of the Court, in which Rehnquist, C. J., and White, O'Connor, Kennedy, and Souter, JJ., joined. Marshall, J., filed a dissenting opinion. Stevens, J., filed a dissenting opinion, in which Marshall and Blackmun, JJ., joined.
Kumho Tire Co. v. Carmichael - This tire-failure case rested in significant part upon the depositions of a tire failure analyst who intended to testify that, in his expert opinion, a defect in the tire’s manufacture or design caused the replica watches blow out. That opinion was based upon a visual and tactile inspection of the tire and upon the theory that in the absence of at least two of four specific, physical symptoms indicating tire abuse, the tire failure of the sort that occurred here was caused by a defect.
General Electric Co. v. Joiner - After he was diagnosed with small-cell lung cancer, the respondent sued in Georgia state court, alleging, inter alia, that his disease was “promoted?by his workplace exposure to chemical “PCBs?and derivative “furans?and “dioxins? that were manufactured by, or present in materials manufactured by, petitioners.
Weisgram v. Marley Co. - An individual died of carbon monoxide poisoning during a fire in her home. Her son, petitioner, individually and on behalf of her heirs brought this diversity action in the District Court seeking wrongful death damages. They alleged that a defect in a heater, manufactured by defendant (now respondent) Marley Company and located in Bonnie Weisgram’s home, caused both the fire and her death.
KSR International Co. v. Teleflex Inc. et al. - A decision regarding obviousness of patents
