Expert Witness Bad Behavior Revealed

July 12, 2011

A recent article in the Seattle Times reveals behavior by an expert witness that is so appalling that it has to be read to be believed.  The article titled Seattle Times special report: Twisted ethics of an expert witness by Ken Armstrong and Maureen O’Hagan chronicles the twisted career of forensic psychology expert witness Stuart Greenberg.  As the article caption notes:

Stuart Greenberg was at the top of his profession: a renowned forensic psychologist who in court could determine which parent got custody of a child, or whether a jury believed a claim of sexual assault. Trouble is, he built his career on hypocrisy and lies, and as a result, he destroyed lives, including his own.

As an expert witness, Stuart Greenberg befriended attorneys, judges and fellow experts.  He apparently exuded confidence to the point jurors or opposing attorneys rarely challenged his qualifications as an expert witness.  However, after years of providing critical trial testimony Greenberg’s violations of professional guidelines came to light.  Click below to read how it all unraveled for forensic psychology expert witness Stuart Greenberg.
