Abstract

Clearly, the final report and opinions of a litigant's trail expert are discoverable. Less clear is the permissible scope of discovery of an expert's draft reports and opinions. Lawyers (yea) and experts (nay) have been heard to express absolute and opposite views. This paper will focus on the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the Federal Rules of Evidence.
