U.S. Federal Court Issues Daubert Ruling Affirming Scientific Validity of Leica ScanStation Evidence

On September 30, 2013, United States Magistrate Judge Gregory B. Wormuth, presiding over the U.S District Court For The District Of New Mexico, issued an order granting a Daubert Motion to affirmatively admit Leica Geosystems ScanStation evidence and related expert testimony in the case of Stephan Cordova v. City of Albuquerque, et al.

The civil lawsuit against the City of Albuquerque stems from an incident on July 30, 2008, when Albuquerque police officers shot and wounded Stephan Cordova. In the judge’s ruling, he noted that plaintiff’s attorneys did not object to the scientific and technical validity of Leica ScanStation evidence or dispute that city defendants had laid a proper scientific and technical foundation for the admissibility of this evidence.
