Balderdash - calling out defense experts who cite phantom articles
This is becoming a pastime of mine. I call it: name that article. Let's see if this defense rehab doctor (physiatrist) can do more than blow smoke:
11 Q So do you believe that when someone has suffered an
12 injury such as she did following a motor vehicle

15 Q I know. You've said that like five times, and I
16 appreciate your longevity in the field. But I'm wanting
17 some support for your statements. So you can't think of
18 a single article?
19 A I don't memorize those kinds of things, it's just stuff
