    Comment on the proposed revision of federal rule of evidence 702: "Clarifying" the court's gatekeeping responsibility over expert testimony
    (2022-12) Mangrum, Richard Collin
    Expert testimony has always presented the courts with an analytical dilemma. On the one hand, jurors may benefit from the insight of experts in understanding complex issues. On the other hand, jurors have limited capacity to evaluate whether expert testimony is “reliable” even aided by the crucibles of cross-examination, rebuttal expert testimony, and closing arguments. One procedural way to handle expert “overstatements” is for the court to have a strong “gatekeeping” responsibility for excluding from the jury unreliable expert opinions. Crafting an evidentiary rule that will effectively exclude unreliable expert opinions without depriving the jury of reliable opinions has proven challenging. The Federal Rules Advisory Committee recently proposed a revision to Federal Rule of Evidence 702 (“Rule 702”). Revised Rule 702 clarifies, not changes, the “gatekeeping” responsibility of the judge over unreliable expert opinions.

    Digital assets in decedents’ estates: Overview and analysis
    (Nebraska State Bar Association, 2022-03-18) Morse, Edward A.
    Digital assets encompass a broad range of electronic files, images, accounts, and information. Some have limited monetary value, but they may require preservation because of sentimental value to family members or loved ones. Conversely, these assets might also require protection from disclosure due to privacy or other concerns. Other digital assets, including comparatively novel ones such as cryptocurrencies or NFTs, have potentially significant monetary value that needs to be secured and transferred.

This outline focuses on fundamental income tax issues and related planning considerations, including effects on tax attributes (including basis), income in respect of a decedent, income effects on ownership transfers involving entities, and tax elections.
