Shaken Baby Cases

By Louise Shorter on 03/05/16


The Tribunal’s judgment against Dr Squier is already starting to shape the course of criminal trials in America.

It is only a matter of time before the same happens here.  In a collection of essays about the wider ramifications of the decision to ban Dr Squier academic Nicholas Binney reflects on the apparent bias the Tribunal showed in reaching its decision, the inconsistency of its reasoning and its failure in some cases even to make clear what it thought Dr Squier had done wrong; Dr Michael Powers QC argues that the Tribunal usurped the function of the courts by determining what expertise is required to give evidence and considers the likely effect of the judgment on any medical expert asked to give evidence here and  American lawyer Randy Papetti analyses the history of the medical controversy and expresses his fears for anyone who now dares to speak out against received opinion.
