Forensic Individuation: Modern Day Snake Oil or Infallible Science? What do Jurors think?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Daubert (1993) transferred the gatekeeping role of evidentiary reliability from the experts (Frye, 1923) to judges. However, research indicates that judges may not be effective gatekeepers (Kovera & McAuliff, 2000). It is then likely that unreliable evidence could be presented in court leaving the evaluation up to the jurors. While there have been a number of studies examining jurors’ reactions to forensic evidence, there are several key questions that remain to be answered. Specifically, what are jurors’ reliability estimates of specific pieces of forensic evidence? How do these estimates influence decisions? Two studies are proposed to answer these questions.
