Illinois State Law Decisions to Be Included at "Daubert on the Web"

We're pleased to announce that C.E. Petit, Esq., better known to some as the fellow who brings you Scrivener's Error, has agreed to monitor Illinois state court decisions for our parent site. Update 4/20/04: Mr. Petit is no slouch. The first Illinois decision has already rolled in.
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.
