Abstract

This article will look at the results of a survey conducted among Texas judges regarding their background, experience, training, and confidence in performing this gate-keeping function. First, it is important to review the history of judicial decision-making as it applies to the admissibility of expert testimony. What have been the legal guidelines for admissibility and how has the recent case law changed those legal standards? Second, what did the survey of Texas judges tell us about their education and perceived ability to perform the gate-keeping role? Finally, what future issues does the judicial gate-keeping rule raise for experts, lawyers, and the judiciary itself?
