Los Angeles judge attacks expert evidence in 3M implant trial:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The judge in a Los Angeles breast implant trial against manufacturer 3M has hit out at "hired experts" brought by plaintiffs in such cases. Judging in favour of 3M, Judge Sutton said: "The safety of medical products should be decided by legitimate scientists, not by plaintiffs' attorneys and their hired experts. We all deserve accurate and well-founded information about silicone breast implants."
