Clodagh Bradley, who is being led by Sir Robert Francis QC, is currently appearing on behalf of Dr Waney Squier, consultant paediatric neuropathologist, in GMC Fitness to Practise proceedings. The Tribunal has heard over 4 months’ of evidence relating to allegations about Dr Squier’s expert testimony in “shaken baby syndrome” cases, where the disputed issues include straying outside of expertise, bias, deliberately misleading the court and dishonesty. The case is likely to have far-reaching implications for expert evidence generally. Closing submissions for the fact finding stage are underway.
