Many section members know that Fellow Ted Hunt has left his long-time position as a prosecutor in Kansas and was recently appointed to lead the new Forensic Science Working Group (FSWG) for the Department of Justice. This Working Group will be tasked with the responsibility of making uniform standards for expert testimony and developing a program to monitor the accuracy of courtroom testimony. Given his prior work on the National Commission for Forensic Sciences, the Legal Resources Committee for the Organization of Scientific Area Committees (OSAC), and his work with the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors (ASCLD), Ted brings a diverse background to this new organization. This work will undoubtedly have a long-lasting effect on courtroom testimony. Congratulations to Ted Hunt.
