Bryan Gowdy Named Chair for the Florida Justice Association Amicus Curiae Committee

In late May, Bryan Gowdy accepted the role of Chair for the Florida Justice Association Amicus Curiae Committee.  In his first order of business, Bryan has expressed his opinions on the Florida Supreme Court's recent adoption of the Daubert standard for expert witness testimony.  In a recent interview with Law360, he stated, "that the plaintiffs bar has never been opposed to having reliable scientific expert testimony."  The Daubert standard may have its concerns, but it can be a good thing.  Moving forward he said, "the court should consider whether to impose monetary sanctions on parties that file multiple unsuccessful Daubert motions. He added that under court rules, the judiciary has the authority to do so."
