Daubert Standard -


Indiana generally follows Daubert. However, they do not consider Daubert controlling. Rather, they treat Daubert as providing factors that the court may consider as helpful in determining reliability under Indiana Rule of Evidence 702(b). See Alsheik v. Guerrero, 956 N.E.2d 1115 (Ind. App. 2011).

Indiana Rule of Evidence 702(b) provides: “[e]xpert scientific testimony is admissible only if the court is satisfied that the expert testimony rests upon reliable scientific principles.”
