A Definitive Solution to the Pronunciation Riddle

Up until now, we had been forced to base our views on how to pronounce "Daubert" on information available from reliable secondary literature.

Ahhhh, good point. 'DAW-bert' is how I pronounce it, if that helps!

Wow. THE Jason Daubert? I've been looking for you...I'm a journalist writing a book that includes a chapter on your famous case and I would love to interview you for it. Would you mind getting in touch with me? Thanks very much.
