Science, Technology, and the Limits of Judicial Competence.
Jasanoff, Sheila; Nelkin, Dorothy
Science, v214 n4526 p1211-15 Dec 1981
Examines recent litigation based on disputes over science and technology, the burdens on the adjudicatory process, and proposed reforms. Argues that such proposals frequently misconceive the problems faced by the courts because they concentrate on the question of technical uncertainty rather than conceptual and policy issues at stake.
