John Edwards on John Edwards's Litigation Career

In light of all the recent discussion of John Edwards's legal career by third-party observers, it seems fair to mention that John Edwards himself has now said a little bit about it, in an op-ed piece in today's New York Times.
Fed. R. Evid. 702: If scientific, technical, or other specialized knowledge will assist the trier of fact to understand the evidence or to determine a fact in issue, a witness qualified as an expert by knowledge, skill, experience, training, or education, may testify thereto in the form of an opinion or otherwise, if (1) the testimony is based upon sufficient facts or data, (2) the testimony is the product of reliable principles and methods, and (3) the witness has applied the principles and methods reliably to the facts of the case.
