Compliance with the Recent Legislative Amendments to Federal Rule 702 2023

Product ID: CA3575D
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

Hone your expert witness expertise 

Changes are coming to Federal Rule of Evidence 702 and the standards for admitting expert testimony. The new Rule 702 takes effect in December of 2023, and some courts have adopted it early. In the first decision to rely on the new version of Rule 702, the Fourth Circuit reversed an erroneous verdict based on unsupported expert testimony.1 That court emphasized the “indispensable nature of district courts’ Rule 702 gatekeeping function in all cases in which expert testimony is challenged on relevance and/or reliability grounds.” 

Be ready for the new Rule with help from Compliance with the Recent Legislative Amendments to Federal Rule 702. You’ll explore how the previous Rule led to confusion and overly liberal admission of expert testimony. And Attorney Gail C. Groy will give you a better understanding of:

  • The historical basis for regulations affecting expert testimony
  • Why the amendments to the rule were necessary 
  • How to comply with the recent amendments to Rule 702 for expert witnesses
  • How the amendments are intended to align the admissibility of expert witness testimony more closely to those used by the scientific community
  • How the amended rules clarify the burden of proof for the proponent of expert testimony 
  • What the expert’s opinion must demonstrate to be admissible

Gail C. Groy is the Founder and President of GROY Law Firm, S.C. focusing her practice on personal injury law and civil litigation. She is admitted to practice in the State Courts of Wisconsin, Federal Courts for the Eastern and Western Districts of Wisconsin, as well as the courts of England and Wales. 

Before she became a lawyer in 1998, Attorney Groy was a qualified electrical and electronics engineer and a high school mathematics and technology teacher. She brought these valuable experiences into her practice of law, handling a wide variety of personal injury and civil litigation cases, such as motor vehicle accidents, products liability, slip and falls, dog bites, medical malpractice, and wrongful death. She has appeared countless times in court, successfully reaching beneficial settlements for her clients through tough negotiations, mediations, and arbitrations. 

Attorney Groy began her legal career in the United Kingdom after graduating from Kingston University Law School in Surrey, Westminster University in London, and The College of Law in Guildford, Surrey. After relocating to the United States, she was successful in petitioning the Supreme Court of Wisconsin to take the Wisconsin Bar Exam. After passing the bar exam, she became one of the first foreign attorneys allowed to practice in the State of Wisconsin without having attended an ABA approved law school.

Her unique background and skill set lead to Attorney Groy’s membership in the American Academy of Forensic Sciences, where she works to bring forensic expertise into her civil litigation practice.
