Davis v. State of Ohio, Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Case No. CV96-312322
state's filing, expert witness, motion in limine, publicity, Keith Sander, Ohio Evid.R. 702
The State of Ohio moves to exclude from trial the expert testimony of Keith Sander, which concerns the publicity surrounding the 1954 trial. Sanders is the compiler of a report entitled "The Cleveland Press Coverage of the Sheppard Murder Case in Relation to Sensational News Treatment." The State argues that this report is neither scientific nor technical and that the evidence will not help the trier of fact determine any of the facts at issue.
