Fascinating. thank you.
Amelia, many thanks for your talk. Sorry, I have to go - but here's a thought to be chewing over. To what extent do you think your findings are specific to forensic science evidence? Or would US appellate courts have said and done similar things in relation to, eg, confession evidence, identification evidence, prejudicial bad character, etc? Look forward to taking later! PR
Hi Amelia, I have to go for a seminar at 17:00, but my question is whether there was any recognition in the courts as to the use of the reports in the proceedings. The reports were presumably not designed to be an 'instrument' in a court case, so did the judges or any other commentators in the proceedings comment on whether they were suitable / appropriate to be re-purposed in this way? Forensic science should be used specifically in a case, the reports are very general?
Thank you, Amelia! This was fantastic!
