One judge, who requested anonymity, listed several ways in which her EINSHAC experience helped her in determining real-life outcomes.
She credits her EINSHAC education for providing a "certain comfort level with science" that has convinced her twice to disqualify scientific experts during trial because they lacked the competence necessary for the case--not something a judge does lightly.
In addition, says this same judge, her experience with EINSHAC gave her the idea of providing case-specific scientific glossaries for jurors, which she has used several times at trial.
The primary EINSHAC goal of helping judges better identify the scientific evidence to be allowed at trial doesn't apply to appellate judges, who can't bring new evidence into their review of lower courts' findings.
One EINSHAC program, the Genetics Adjudication Resource Project, or GARP, is designed to assist judges by predicting new kinds of cases that may arise from the Human Genome Project's mapping of all human genes.
In following the science, EINSHAC is taking on a more global perspective, according to Zweig.
