Expert Impeachment

In Ad-Vantage Telephone Directory Consultants, Inc. v. GTE Directories Corp. (11th Cir. 1994) 37 F.3d 1460, the reviewing court held it was improper to impeach an expert witness (an accountant) with a prior bankruptcy proceeding, with his having borrowed money from clients (ethically questionable but not relevant to his truthfulness as an expert), and various grievance procedures against him by the Florida Bar and Institute of Certified Public Accountants.  One of these procedures had occurred in 1969 and thus, as a “temporally remote act” was only “weakly probative” of current credibility.  (Id., at p. 1464.)
