Topic Background:

Hot Tubbing, also known as Concurrent Evidence or the Tandem Expert Process, originated in Australia in the mid-1990s but has been imported to the U.S. in recent years. While hot tubbing has primarily been used in arbitration it is now moving into U.S. courtrooms. As initially formulated the process was intended as a way to better control a case involving expert testimony. Generally, the process involves expert witnesses taking the witness stand to offer their opinions back to back on specific issues. Following each presentation, the experts may question one another and debate various responses. The judge or tribunal can also question each expert to clarify issues in their minds. As is to be expected, there are perceived good and bad points concerning the process. This paper is based in part on a literature review concerning hot tubbing. This information is bolstered by the results of a privately run survey of expert witnesses who have participated in matters involving hot tubbing. Each experienced expert was asked to address what they consider to be the benefits and the weaknesses of the process in order to answer the question – does hot tubbing work from the perspective of the testifying expert?
