Patrick Sadd spoke on ‘The Critical Role of Expert Evidence’ at the Cambridge Medico-Legal conference
Patrick Sadd spoke on Friday 26 September 2014 at the annual Cambridge Medico-Legal conference, to an audience of doctors, solicitors and barristers in Peterhouse College. He looked at a case study on the use of experts in litigation drawing on a recent abuse case in which the Claimant was seeking £5 million damages, Patrick Raggett v The Society of Jesus Trust 1929 for Roman Catholic Purposes  EWHC 3132. The Court heard from 4 expert witnesses; the Judge preferred the evidence of only 1 of the 4. The case sets out the pitfalls of experts becoming advocates on behalf of one or other side.
