D|S Partner Ken DeMoura Speaks On Challenging Eyewitness Testimony at NYC Symposium

Advances in science have called eyewitness testimony, once considered the gold-standard of evidence, into question in recent years. Courts have shown a greater willingness to permit expert testimony on the reliabiliity of eyewitness accounts and the variables that can affect the ability to observe and recall an event.

On November 30, 2018, DeMoura|Smith partner Ken DeMoura spoke about challenging eyewitness testimony and its reliability using science, during Renaissance Symposium XIV at the Harvard Club of New York City. The title of his presentation was “As Far As The Eye Can See: Challenging Eye-Witness Testimony With Science.” The slide presentation is available here.

Conducted by the Litigation Counsel of America, Renaissance Symposium XIV continues the LCA’s exclusive, advanced, small-group lecture series, on trial tactics and strategy. Sixteen trial attorneys and trial consultants present at the Symposium. The full-day immersive format is designed to encourage personal interaction about superior trial techniques and ideas and a robust exchange among the speakers and ten additional, accomplished trial attorneys. LCA Fellows come to the Renaissance Symposium to exchange trial tactics and techniques of the highest order. This is Ken’s fourth time presenting at the Renaissance Symposium for the LCA.
