The problem here is that Brauchler is not securing this testimony to object to her testifying as an expert. He's doing it to undermine the weight of her opinions before she even testifies. This is problematic.
Board certification is not the standard for testimony. It's a creature of the last 20 years in medicine. Anyone trained before 1990 is not typically Board certified. She has more education that all the lawyers in that courtroom -- I would think people wouldn't be so quick to dismiss her.
