    DURING THE EXAMINATION:


    Send a court reporter who:


    Never leaves your client alone, no matter how long the exam takes (remember, some can last as long as 8 hours and the reporter needs to know this in advance).


    Provides the transcript in digital format. This makes it easier to share with other attorneys and is excellent for creating questions for cross examination because word searching capabilities in a digital document speed up the process.


    Never releases a copy of the transcript to the defense attorney.


    Remembers that YOU hired the reporter, and the reporter answers to you. Some physicians have tried to throw my reporters out of the evaluation. They stay. Period.


    Can't afford a court reporter? Send a tape recorder with your client(s) and make sure your client knows when to turn the tape over by loaning them a watch with an alarm preset to go off at the end of the tape.


    DURING THE DEPOSITION


    Bring a laptop with an air card. When the doctor fails to bring the articles he relied upon, claiming they exist, turn the computer around and tell him he is more than welcome to look them up on the internet. This works great in a video depo.


    Bring a second laptop on which is loaded all prior depositions so prior testimony can be accessed with a word search function on your computer. This is much faster than tabbing hard copies.


    The doctor claims to review the medical records. You are skeptical. Bring a plastic bag. At the conclusion of the deposition, seal the records in the plastic bag and advise the doctor you are giving them to the court reporter until your fingerprint expert can pick them up in the morning. Sit back and watch the fireworks.


    The doctor claims he didn't recently alter the raw data and you know she/he did. Get the plastic bag out. Seal the document and advise opposing attorney you are having the ink dated at the lab of your choice. Some labs can tell you if ink is 2 years to 6 months old.


    Point out the selective reporting that goes on in virtually every CME. High scales, such as scale 8 on the MMPI2 can indicate the presence of a head injury. Never have I ever had a defense doctor admit to this in a report.


    Ask them if the plaintiff did well on the mental status exam. Most doctors administer the Folstein Mental Status Exam which is actually a screening device for Alzheimer's patients. However, most doctors don't score the test, fail to ask all the questions, and, more importantly, lie about the results. Ask the doctor if the patient answered the questions correctly. When the doctor says yes, present the doctor with the transcript that reflects many of the questions were answered incorrectly. Then file your Motion to Strike based on fraud.


    The doctor testifies that he does 1/3 plaintiff work. Yeah, right. He/she then hands you a list of cases in which he has testified for the last several years but they do not identify if they are plaintiff or defense referral. Point out that he is hiding that information and it would only take a second or two to note on each case who referred it but in leaving that information out, you cannot address bias. Then ask the doctor to identify on the list each plaintiff referral. In every case in which I required the doctor to do this, he was only able to identify one or two percent of his referrals as plaintiff.

    The Florida Bar summed up the problem regarding Mr. Baez.
    "His overall behavior, they wrote, showed "a total lack of respect for the rights of others and a total lack of respect for the legal system, which is absolutely inconsistent with the character and fitness qualities required of those seeking to be afforded the highest position of trust and confidence recognized by our system of law."

    Just an observation, but I don't think any of the above prepares her for verbal jousting with Dr. G. on cross-exam.

    Agree! she sounds more like a personal injury attorney and not really how much she has dealt with homicide

    She's certainly got tons of intellectually dishonest gimmicks. Too bad she can't be put on the stand and discredited.

    An interesting tidbit about DCS..

    http://legalblogwatch.typepad.com/le...rcing-exp.html

    Snip
    Sims has reduced [medical expert costs] by hiring medical experts in India for a fraction of the price, and she makes the service available to other American lawyers through an Internet-based business called MD in a Box. The U.S. lawyers pay $90 an hour for the medical consulting. The process works through a real-time link to an Indian doctor by computer. Sims describes a typical case in which a U.S. orthopedic surgeon disputes her client's claims in an American courtroom.

    "I have my computer with me, and my doctor in India is listening to the orthopedic surgeon the whole time, through a microphone plugged into my laptop," said Dorothy Clay Sims. "He is then sending me instant messages saying, "that is not true. It is actually such and such or so and so." And I look down at my screen and I will just say exactly what the doctor said from India."

    That is hilarious. We already knew that JB was basically a ventriloquist dummy getting texts (likely from LKB) during proceedings to appear as if he knew what he was doing. Now I guess we can add another to that list. I can see the necessity of attorneys relying on expert testimony to make their case because they can't always be subject matter experts in scientific or other areas. But when they are being coached live, like some sort of Cyrano de Bergerac scenario, I think it crosses some kind of line to appear to know something you don't. JMO, but if you need an expert to refute somebody because their expertise is out of your purview, then swear them in and put them on the stand for gods' sakes. Or admit you are getting coached. Otherwise, it's like some kind of Karaoke Law.

    Let me amend that. Maybe it's more like Milli Vanilli Law.

    Interesting since any doctor coming from another country would not be considered a "doctor" in the U.S. until he went through "residency" in the United States.

    First, the physician must to take board exams and an English language test. A foreign-trained physician must go through a residency program. Residency positions
    Yet for doctors trained in other countries, fewer than 40 percent of those who apply for a US residency are accepted.

    I wonder what she would of wrote for Caylee and her poor mom.

    My mom didn't give a damn about me. I got in her way so I ended up as a bag of bones a swamp.

    But hey that's OK, my mom had an excuse for killing me. Dot told my mom that she was a victim just like me.

    I'm sorry, I just can't let Caylee go yet.
