Rule 26 Ramification
If, hypothetically, I was engaged as an expert witness by an attorney in connection with “undesirables” let’s say, for example, drug dealers and I gave expert testimony. Would the fact that I was associated with such people be a reason the opposing counsel or trier of fact might use to have me dismissed as an expert witness in future cases? I believe that under Rule 26 I must indicate the cases I have served on as an expert witness. If there are negative ramifications, that is certainly something I wish to avoid. Will the court or anyone else hold the above hypothetical example against me in any way?
Thank you for your attention in this important matter.
