Daubert Standard -


Adopted the Daubert standard in State v. Porter, 698 A.2d 739 (Conn. 1997) (“Accordingly, we conclude that the Daubert approach should govern the admissibility of scientific evidence in Connecticut.”) The Connecticut Supreme Court also held “that the validity of the methodologies underlying proffered scientific evidence should be considered in determining the admissibility of such evidence, as well as in determining its weight. Accordingly, we also conclude that it is proper for a trial judge to serve a gatekeeper function.” Id. at 747.
