Critics of the tort system have condemned courts for their alleged leniency in admitting scientific expert testimony, especially in mass exposure litigation. Claiming that this has resulted in an epidemic of "junk science" in the courtroom, these commentators have urged a more scientific approach to admissibility, intimating that employing more scientific standards would exclude scientific evidence favorable to plaintiffs, thereby demonstrating to factfinders that litigated substances are in fact safe or at least not unsafe.
