Rochkind v. Stevenson – Maryland gets on board with Daubert
Abstract: Maryland’s highest court has belatedly joined the majority of jurisdictions in the United States in adopting the 1993 Daubert test for determining the admissibility of expert scientific testimony. This article explains why the court decided to abandon the state’s former “two-channel” approach in favor of a broader 10-factor approach. Rochkind v. Stevenson, No. 24-C-11-008722 (Md. Aug. 28, 2020). Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, Inc., 509 U.S. 579 (1993). Frye v. United States, 293 F. 1013 (D.C. Cir 1923). Reed v. State, 283 Md. 374, 381 (1978).
