Ghost-Writing Reports

In a district court case in 2001, the plaintiff’s attorney argued that the government’s litigation consultants were ghost-writing expert reports, and the experts were destroying documents in order to prevent discovery.

The court refused to allow the expert to participate in the dispute.

“The more involvement the client’s attorney has with the expert’s report the more likely this involvement will be disclosed on cross-examination and result in the court discounting the expert’s testimony as lacking objectivity.
