When science and special interests collide
Anyone called to testify should be compensated like we are for jury duty...and NOT a penny more. It's one of the things that can keep people from being able to file a malpractice lawsuit...it can cost more to have a "professional" testify than what the allowed award is in a state for malpractice, despite what was or was not done to the person/patient.
I think his compensation was more than should be allowed, however, he should be able to use that money given to him for whatever he chooses. These universities and pharmaceutical companies are not holding the better interest of Americans, only themselves.
Monsanto pays their expert witnesses. Do they keep track of how that money is spent?
