Cartel judge warns on expert testimony

Berman says testimonies from two experts have the potential to encroach on his role and the role of the jury

Know your role: Judge wants to ensure expert testimony does not tell jurors what conclusion to reach

A US District Court judge overseeing the price-rigging lawsuit against three former UK foreign exchange traders said on September 26 that he is concerned testimonies from expert witnesses in the case could potentially encroach on his role and that of the jury.

Judge Richard Berman’s concern comes two weeks away from the October 9 start of the trial of Christopher Ashton, formerly of Barclays; Rohan Ramchandani, previously of Citi; and Richard Usher, most recently of JP Morgan and RBS.
