Evidence - Expert Opinion

White Burgess Langille Inman v. Abbott and Haliburton Co. (SCC, 2015)

In this case the Supreme Court of Canada reviewed in depth the law of expert opinion evidence as it relates to admissibility, weight to be accorded such evidence, the potential for bias of a witness, and the duty of an expert witness to the court [paras 10-55]. The case is essential reading for anyone involved with a case involving an expert witness, or contemplating their use.
