ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
Many people made important contributions to this project. We would particularly like to thank Judyth Pendell. During her stay at the ICJ as a visiting fellow in 1998, she identified not only the issues surrounding expert evidence in the courts but also promising research topics. Throughout the project, she provided valuable input on methodological and substantive issues and initiated contacts with others knowledgeable on expert evidence.We benefited greatly from an advisory committee set up for the project, the members of which were
Marsha Rabiteau (chair), Dow Chemical
Tom Hill, General Electric
Judyth Pendell, Pendell Consulting
Paul Rheingold, Rheingold, Valet, Rheingold and Shkolnik, P.C.
Paul Rothstein, Georgetown Law School
John Shewmaker, Pfizer
Bill Stock, Exxon Mobil.

This committee helped us interpret the trends we were seeing in the data, suggested areas for additional analysis, and provided comments on interim drafts. We thank them for their time and effort.

The formal technical reviewers of the draft report were Margaret Berger at Brooklyn Law School and Michelle White at RAND. Their comments improved the report significantly. We received insightful comments on the draft from Kim Brunner at State Farm Insurance Companies; Joe Cecil at the Federal Judicial Center; Lovida Coleman, Jr., at Sutherland, Asbill & Brennan, LLP; Tom Rowe at Duke Law School; and Larry Stewart at Stewart Tilghman Fox & Bianchi, P.A. Bert Black at Diamond McCarthy Taylor & Finley, LLP, provided insightful comments on interim findings and was a valuable source of information on expert evidence procedures, issues, and data throughout the project.

Many people at RAND made important contributions to the project. Dan McCaffrey provided statistical advice, Nick Pace helped us develop the coding instrument and access the Federal Filing Database, Steve Garber was a useful sounding board for ideas, Lisa Wong provided programming support, and Nicki Wickham formatted the coding instrument and coordinated the work of the coders. Melody Fowler, Paul Hellyer, Babak Nehoray, Eda Suh, Shaw Yadegar, and John Yang coded the opinions. We thank them for the care with which they did their work, Laura Zakaras helped improve the clarity and effectiveness of the Summary;
