Limitation on Number of Expert Witnesses

Clark v. State, ___ So. 3d ___, 35 Fla. L. Weekly D1809 (Fla. 3d DCA 8/11/10)

The State did not violate the limitation on one expert per side in a Jimmy Rice Act case by admitting the report of an expert who was a member of the multidisciplinary team retained by the Department of Children and Families to evaluate the defendant and make a recommendation regarding his civil commitment because the expert was not retained by either the State or the defense.
