    Abstract

    Automotive paint technology has been in a state of constant change over the past 15 years. Along with this change in technology has come a new challenge for the criminalist. With the courts relying more on physical evidence, a thorough and accurate explanation of the value of class evidence is necessary. It is the forensic scientist's responsibility not only to report his laboratory findings, but also to assess the probative meaning of those results.
