Briefly sketched is the history of the use of experts' testimony in the courts. Specific rules of federal and state courts have recently made it easier to introduce statisticians' testimony. There are dangers in the free introduction of such testimony. Ways are suggested to assure greater reliability in experts' opinions through improvements in procedure, stronger control by the courts, pressure by outside agencies and substantive law reform.
