Judges Can Be Mean

   Judges can hurt an expert witness’ reputation by making negative comments about the expert in open courtroom. A judge in Florida’s Fourth District Court of Appeal said the following about an expert when a defense attorney asked why he excluded the expert:

“Dr. ____ is an insidious perjurer who wouldn’t know the truth if it leapt up and bit him on the ***.”

   The expert is a doctor since 1963 and has testified for 25 years.

   On appeal the appellate court upheld the judge’s ruling that the expert’s claim lacked merit.
