    Abstract

    There are those in the legal profession, including some judges, who believe that the only good expert is a dead one. Such people believe that only established truth through science should be permitted into the courtroom; anything less is rank speculation and should be excluded on summary judgment. In such a world, there would be scant need for causation experts or juries, despite the guarantee of the Seventh Amendment.
