Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King, Jr. was born on January 15, 1929.  We celebrate his birthday on the Monday closest to that day.  He was assassinated on April 4, 1968.  During his lifetime, Dr. King received a Ph.D. in Theology from Boston University.

Abusing a Plaintiff By Hiding Information About a Brain Injury

There are a number of techniques the defense uses to try and disprove a brain injury. One of the most prominent is to have an expert administer mental exams to the plaintiff and then hide the raw data. The plaintiff’s attorney’s job is to have the expert release the raw data to the plaintiff and the court. If the expert refuses to do that, then the tests should not be permitted in testimony.
