Another Free Bonus to Our Readers

Beginning with this calendar year, we've started maintaining a spreadsheet for all federal appellate decisions involving the admissibility of expert evidence under Daubert and Rule 702. The idea is to record certain information about the opinions in a manner that would later facilitate statistical analysis, but the spreadsheet is also handy for providing a synoptic view of the year's decisions. Plus it includes PDF files with the text of the opinions themselves.

We've decided, for the time being at least, to make it available, for free, to all comers. You can download it by clicking here, or by manually pointing your browser to:
