FEDERAL PUBLIC DEFENDER
Southern District of Texas
WORKING WITH AND AGAINST EXPERTS IN FEDERAL COURT
CJA Panel Training
Wednesday October 20, 2021


 

The Criminal Justice Act (“CJA”) provides for the appointment of counsel in criminal cases to persons who are financially unable to obtain adequate representation. 18 U.S.C. § 3006A(a). In the Southern District of Texas, in cases where the Federal Public Defender has not been appointed to represent a defendant who is entitled to the assistance of appointed counsel, individual defense attorneys are chosen from a federal panel. The Federal Public Defender is charged with assuring that members of the CJA panel are familiar with federal criminal practice.

 

This presentation will assist practitioners in both using and litigating against expert witnesses in federal criminal cases. The focus will be on procedures and substantive issues involved in using defense experts in pretrial, trial, and sentencing contexts, as well as attacking government experts.
