Joint experts reports: Changed positions after signing

Noted in the blog Civil Litigation Brief is a UK decision Iraqi Civilians v Ministry of Defence [2015] EWHC 1254 (QB).

One of the authors of a joint report, providing evidence of interpretation of foreign laws, indicated on the day before the hearing that he did not agree with two paragraphs of a joint report he had signed: [38].

The court rejected the evidence of the author that the report did not reflect his views when he signed the report, but recognised that an expert may change his (or her) mind: [40] – [41].

Cross examination of the expert was directed to the extent to which he had changed his mind and to the underlying issues of interpretation of Iraqi law.
