This article addresses the Daubert standard of reliability for the admission of scientific evidence. It also addresses the requirements of FRE 702, which was amended after Daubert to impose a reliability standard for all expert testimony. It discusses the implications of this requirement, the scope of review, and the conflict among state authorities about the applicable standard for admitting scientific evidence or expert testimony generally.
